Tigers Jaw Oh Time

All time is complicated

It sails away when we want it to stay

Moves slowly

Staring us down when we want it to move on

Balancing on the line

No net to catch this time

I am a patient in your room of waiting

Turn pages of magazines

Wait for the bad news

Balancing on the line

No net to catch this time

When everything is a lie

No net to catch this time

Time stands still

But you can’t run away, run away

Hours pass with no natural light

You always set me up to fall in the worst way

You know it

Don’t you know it?

Don’t you run

Oh time, counter-intuition

I can’t get it to work for me or the things I need
