Annotationen

«When it is evening, you say, "It will be fair weather; for the sky is red." And in the morning, "It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening." You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.» Matthew 16:2b–3

Lyrics

Oh yeah! In France, a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name By chance his girlfriend came across a needle and soon she did the same At home there are seventeen-year-old boys and their idea of fun Is being in a gang called 'The Disciples' High on crack and totin' a machine gun Time Times Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church and killed everyone inside You turn on the telly and every other story is tellin' you somebody died A sister killed her baby 'cause she couldn't afford to feed it And yet we're sending people to the moon In September, my cousin tried reefer for the very first time Now he's doing horse - it's June, unh Times Times It's silly, no? When a rocket ship explodes and everybody still wants to fly But some say a man ain't happy unless a man truly dies Oh why? Time Time Baby make a speech, Star Wars fly Neighbors just shine it on But if a night falls and a bomb falls Will anybody see the dawn? Time, mm Times Is it silly, no? When a rocket blows and, and everybody still wants to fly Some say man ain't happy truly until a man truly dies Oh why, oh why? Sign o' the times, unh Time Time Sign o' the times mess with your mind Hurry before it's too late Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby We'll call him Nate If it's a boy Time Times
