Lyrics

[Intro] [Verse 1] Time - He's waiting in the wings He speaks of senseless things His script is you and me, Boy Time - He flexes like a whore Falls wanking to the floor His trick is you and me, Boy Time - In Quaaludes and red wine Demanding Billy Dolls And other friends of mine Take your time The sniper in the brain Regurgitating drain Incestuous and vain And many other last names Well, I look at my watch it says 9:25 and I think "Oh God! I'm still alive." [Chorus] We should be on by now We should be on by now Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li [Verse 2] You - Are not a victim You - Just scream with boredom! You - Are not evicting time... [Bowie breathing heavily] Chimes - Goddamn, you're looking old You'll freeze and catch a cold 'Cause you've left your coat behind Take your time Breaking up is hard But keeping dark is hateful I had so many dreams I had so many breakthroughs But you, my love, were kind But love has left you dreamless The door to dreams was closed Your park was real and dreamless Perhaps you're smiling now Smiling through this darkness But all I have to give Is guilt for dreaming [Chorus] We should be on by now We should be on by now We should be on by now We should be on by now We should be on by now Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la, yes, time!
