Time marches on
Time stands still
Time on my hands, time to kill

Blood on my hands
And my hands in the till
Down at the 7-11

Gentle rain falls on me
And all life folds back into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of Heaven

The past seems realer
Than the present to me now
I've got memories to last me

When the sky is gray
The way it is today
I remember the times when I was happy

Same old sun, same old moon
It's the same old story
Same old tune

They all say
Someday soon
My sins will all be forgiven

Gentle rain falls on me
All life folds back into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of Heaven

They say, "Every thing's all right"
They say, "Better days are near"
They tell us, "These are the good times"
But they don't live around here

Billy and Christie don't
Bruce and Patti don't
They don't live around here

I had a girl, now she's gone
She left town
And town burned down

Nothing left
But the sound
Of the front door closing forever

Gentle rain falls on me
And all life folds back into the sea
We contemplate eternity
Beneath the vast indifference of Heaven
The vast indifference of Heaven
