Old Man Markley – Killing Time lyrics

Tell me why we suffer
Is it in the book?
Tell me why we suffer
Now here's an overlook
So take a look

We're paying for our sins
Proving faith is blind
It's just a byproduct of man's free will
And we're earning jewels on our crowns in heaven

Tell me what we're doing
Are we just killing time?
Now I know you can't tell me why we're here
Just that it's a crime
To ask what's on his mind

Are we supposed to trust them to run our whole lives
They get our time and money and our children's too
While we get boring lives
Killing time

Do your own thinking and living, it ain't killing time
