Time will crawl

I've never sailed on a sea
I would not challenge a giant
I could not take on the church
Time will crawl
Till the 21st century lose

I know a government man
He was as blind as the moon and he
He saw the sun in the night
He took a top-gun pilot and he
He made him fly through a hole
Till he grew real old and he
And he never came down
He just flew till he burst

(Time will crawl)
Till our mouths run dry
(Time will crawl)
Till our feet grow small
(Time will crawl)
Till our tails fall off
(Time will crawl)
Till the 21st century lose

I saw a black black stream
Full of white eyed fish
And a drowning man
With no eyes at all
I felt a warm warm breeze
That melted metal and steel
I got a bad migraine, that lasted three long years and a
And the pills that I took, made my fingers disappear

(Time will crawl)
(Time will crawl)
(Time will crawl)
Till the 21st century lose

Yo
Time will crawl
Time will crawl

You were a talented child
You came to live in our town
We never bothered to scream
When your mask went off
We only smelt the gas
As we lay down to sleep

(Time will crawl)
And our heads bowed down
(Time will crawl)
And our eyes fell out
(Time will crawl)
And the streets run red
(Time will crawl)
Till the 21st century lose

And our mouths run dry
(Time will crawl)
And our feet grow small
(Time will crawl)
And our tails fall off
(Time will crawl)
Till the 21st century lose

And our heads bowed down
(Time will crawl)
And our eyes fall out
(Time will crawl)
And the streets run red
(Time will crawl)
Till the 21st century lose

(Time will crawl)
For the crazy child
(Time will crawl)
We'll give every life
(Time will crawl)
For the crackpot notion
Till the 21st century loose

Time will crawl
Time will crawl
Time will crawl
