James Millerin – The Persistence Of Memory lyrics

We've reached the end,
Now we'll never see tomorrow,
My mind can't comprehend,
How much time did we borrow? Not enough.

Is this the end of a life,
Or the end of an era?
Inevitably the end of me is drawing ever nearer,
And the reasons becoming clearer,
The one thought I'd feared of,
You left me just as soon as you and I were becoming dearer.

See time us precious,
Count the grains of sand,
'Cuz in the end you might end up with more time than planned,
The powers in your hands,
Don't leave it to chance
Or you'll end up like me in the story of a beat down, broken man.

Hello, can you hear me now?
It's only been 3 seconds since your head hit the ground,
I'm sorry I haven't always been around,
Your memory will live on, I'll do the things to make you proud.

We've reached the end,
Now we'll never see tomorrow.
My mind can't comprehend,
How much time did we borrow?

The tastiest apple,
In the garden of Eden.
Enough to nourish, to give life to the people that need feedin'.
But now I see no reason, to keep believin'
This is an ode to all the people whose hearts are still bleedin'.

Please, open ya mouth,
Blow away this cloud.
Smash, on the ground,
98 green bottles standing proud
Around your box, into the ground.
By myself I'm lost, with you I was found.

Hello, can you hear me now?
It's only been 3 seconds since your head hit the ground,
I'm sorry I haven't always been around,
Your memory will live on, I'll do the things to make you proud.

We've reached the end,
Now we'll never see tomorrow.
My mind can't comprehend,
How much time did we borrow? Not enough.
