The hour glass is flipped once again.
The world has held itself still for me.
As so it seems the second I zip to leave,
As so it seems the second I zip to leave this place.
Cramped but wanting nothing, wanting nothing than to be with my boys again.
I no longer fear disease,
But I can’t cure you from what you have.
We are born greedy
I never wanted what we had.
Sometimes I wondered if there was reason.
And if so, I no longer care to know.

I no longer care to know
No longer care to know
You never cared to know

Time did not stop for me.
Time has not stopped to wait.
You never stopped for me.

I no longer fear disease,
But I can’t cure you from what you have.
We are born greedy
I never wanted what we had.
Sometimes I wondered if there was reason.
And if so, I no longer care to know.

For years and years I was a child
I wish to start over, to derail my life from your tracks x2

I no longer fear disease,
But I can’t cure you from what you have.
We are born greedy
I never wanted what we had.
Sometimes I wondered if there was reason.
And if so, I no longer care to know.

You’re never gonna be around to enjoy what you did x2
Years and years, I ended up drinking from the empty cup
You are why I walk to today a thirsty man.
