Missing Persons – Racing Against Time lyrics

Terry Bozzio & Warren Cuccurullo)
Causing diversion for the pass under the table
Who to know-what to show-where to go-when to blow
Be wise to sleep with one eye open if you're able
Running in-running out-running over-you're in doubt
Running on a line in a circle 'neath a net
Getting upset-wanting to forget-everything's a threat
Feeling something wet, who said it's no sweat
Racing against time-it's all I do
Racing against time-I don't like to
Racing against time-it's all I do
Racing against time-I don't like to
The clock keeps ticking-pieces of my life go slipping by
I'm pushing forward-moving backward-and I don't know why
The pressure's building-pressure's making it impossible
Before you know it it's completely uncontrollable
Does this kind of life look interesting to you
It could be quite confusing just to watch me do what I do
It's like I'm living in a situation comedy
They've got me socializing with these absent entities
Even when I'm reasoning in slow decaying orbits
Public opinion isn't fast enough to grasp it
