  • Time why you punish me
    Like a wave bashing into the shore
    You wash away my dreams

    Time why you walk away
    Like a friend with somewhere to go
    You left me crying

    Can you teach me 'bout tomorrow
    And all the pain and sorrow running free
    'Cause tomorrow's just another day
    And I don't believe in time

    Time I don't understand
    Children killing in the street
    Dying for the color of red

    Time there red and blue
    Wash them in the ocean, make them clean
    Maybe their mother won't cry tonight

    Can you teach me about tomorrow
    And all the pain and sorrow running free
    But tomorrow's just another day
    And I don't believe in

    Time is wasting time is walking
    You ain't no friend of mine
    I don't know where I'm goin'
    I think I'm out of my mind
    Thinking about time
    And if I die tomorrow
    Just lay me down in sleep

    Time is wasting time is walking
    You ain't no friend of mine
    I don't know where I'm goin'
    I think I'm out of my mind
    Thinking about time

    Time you left me standing there
    Like a tree growing all alone
    The wind just stripped me bare
    Stripped me bare

    Time the past has come and gone
    The future's far away
    And now only lasts for one second, one second

    Can you teach me 'bout tomorrow
    And all the pain and sorrow, running free
    'Cause tomorrow's just another day
    And I don't believe in time

    You ain't no friend of mine
    I don't know where I'm goin'
    I think I'm out of my mind

    Walking, wasting
    You ain't no friend of mine
    And I don't know where I'm goin'
    No don't know

    Time without courage
    And time without fear
    Is just wasted, wasted
    Wasted time
