Time is a theif with a loaded gun
The sky runs by while the days are gone
The night falls prey to another sun
All like clockwork they won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
Oh
Don't stand still or we'll lose our ground
The world keeps spinning just to wear us down
Say what you must while we stand around
The days go to sleep but they won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
Ohhh

We never should allow
Another sun to set
And all the words that we have held so long
I know we're not as strong and though
Once tomorrow comes
But tomorrow already happened

Time is a theif with a loaded gun
The sky runs by while the days are gone
The night falls prey to another sun
The days go to sleep but they won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop
They won't stop (ooohhhh)
They won't stop (ooohhhh)
They won't stop (ooohhhh)
They won't stop (ooohhhh)
They won't

We never should allow
Another sun to set
And all the words that we have held so long
I know we're not as strong and though
Once tomorrow comes
But tomorrow already happened

Tomorrow
Tomorrow
Tomorrow tomorrow oh, ooh

We can wait for the sunrise
To say what should matter
We know but tomorrow, tomorrow,
Tomorrow just happens

Today we have to make the most of now
Tomorrow we don't have a choice
All we ever get control of is now
Today we have to make the most of now
Tomorrow we don't have a choice
All we ever get control of is now

    Instead of "I know we're not as strong and though" I've always thought it was "I know we'd rather sort it out".

    It's a shame Clockwork won't be on Armistice. I'd rather have it than Spotlight. But oh well.
