Years at the Speed of Light

You look at the calendar and just can't believe it,

Where did the time go, how did it disappear?

So much has changed, but you still think the same

You see the changes in those around you, and in the mirror,

but deep inside, everything's as it always has been

You don't like all the differences, but what can you do?

Dragged kicking and screaming into a brave new world

You feel so out of place, you feel so turned around

Days and years are gone in the blink of an eye

The calendar's just a blur, as it marks the passing time

Just shake your head at the flying years, and hold on tight

This ride at a funhouse carnival charge us quite a lot

but this ride you can't step off when you're weary

This ride go on, and on, and on, speeding up if anything

All-too-soon the carnival will close, so you'd better look around
