LYRICS!

Look at the time
I've been displaced
Don't run and hide, no
Suspend me in space.

Oh god
Time after time
You drop the facade
And I see it unwind
I see all the flaws
In my tarnished design.

Oh no
Off we go
It's painfully slow, yet
Somehow sublime
Falling through time.

Now and again, afraid to go on
My veneer runs thin
And I look back, appraise all the highs
Pseudo denouement wherein
(schemes) Twenty years past feels sixty years gone
(dreams)I feel myself growing stiff and withdrawn
(love) Just fix me in time, put me out of place
Don't make me age, suspend me in space (oh no).

Off we go
It's painfully slow, yet
Somehow sublime
Falling through time.

Retrograde; make it all go away
Retrograde; these memories are here to stay
Retrograde; maybe I'll sail someday.
Retrograde; make it all go away
Retrograde; these memories are here to stay
Retrograde; maybe I'll fly someday...
Set sail and slip away.

(oh no, off we go)
