If I have understood correctly
Velocity equals the distance traveled divided by time
I've read every word ever printed on quantum physics
And now it is time to try

I read your book, I found your notes
I dusted this thing off and turned on the key
The rumbling motors, the buzzing incredible gadgets
The hissing electricity and now the moment has come
I'm traveling back in time

They're running down the hall, I've started the countdown
They want me to stop but I don't think so
I'm ready to go, let's get the job done

Beyond the paradoxical, all the lights are dazzling
Pass the planes and trains and satellite navigation
Pass the time I spent today through the nearest wormhole
In a stunning ball of white, the light explodes and lands on you

And you're five, always running away
When I was dying to kiss you and I, I don't want to cry
I don't want to see where the moving van takes you
So I travel on beyond the stars

At one hundred and eighty six thousand miles per seconds I can fly
Forward a few years to nineteen hundred and seventy nine
I caught a glimpse of the sky

They're coming down the road, they're coming to get me
I never should have come, I hide the time machine
I'm running down the hall, I think I'm in my old house

Pass the place where I grew up
Number nine, Lake Road
Pass the swimming pool and Mable park
And past Troy Clifford's house

To the Argonaut
To the fish and chip shop
Out the back and down the road
Into the place I got beat up

Hey, put that rock down
Can't you see he's half your size?
Hey, he looks familiar
Oh my God, it's me, aged nine

Put your shoes on and run away from here
I can't get involved, this is all so weird
I'm meeting myself, this is all so clear

All the things I've lost, all the people I hurt
All the times I lied, all the moments wasted
All I never did, all the dreams I had
All the things I would change, I can change them

All the things I've lost, all the people I hurt
All the times I lied, all the moments wasted

I'm gonna make right what I did wrong
And change how the future is gone
Through appliance of science

I'll take hold of my enemies
Take their obscenities, kiss them
And leave them like lovers who've gone

I'll call my dad, I'll tell him I miss him
And tell my reflection, it's not your fault
And now the moment has come, I'm traveling back in time

They're running down the hall, I've started the countdown
They want me to stop but I don't think so
I'm ready to go, let's get the job done

Put your shoes on and run away from here
I can't get involved, this is all so weird
Oh my God, it's me aged nine
Let's get the job done

All the things I've lost, all the people I hurt
All the times I lied, all the moments wasted
All I never did, all the dreams I had
All the things I would change, I can change them

Beyond the paradoxical, all the lights are dazzling
Pass the planes and trains and satellite navigation
Pass the time I spent today through the nearest wormhole
In a stunning ball of white, the light explodes into another moment
