  • There's a darkening sky before me
    There's no time to prepare
    Salvage a last horizon
    But no regrets from me

    Maybe I'll be back some other day
    To live again just who can say
    In what shape or form that I might be
    Just another chance for me

    A hurried time, no disgrace
    Instead of racing to conclusion
    Wishing all my life away
    No one can stop me now

    Time is up, it couldn't last
    But there's more things I'd like to do
    I'm coming back to try again
    Someday maybe I'll wait 'til then

    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies

    They're all sitting at my table
    Talking tall and drinking wine
    Their time is up just like me
    But they just don't know it yet

    So just a word of warning
    When you're in your deepest dreams
    There's nothing you can hide from
    I've got my eye on you

    The clock is fast, the hour is near
    Eventful past is ever clear
    My life is set, the time is here
    I think I'm coming home

    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies

    A hurried time, no disgrace
    Instead of racing to conclusions
    Wishing all your life away
    No one can stop me now

    Time is up, it couldn't last
    But there's more things I have to do
    I'm coming back to try again
    Don't tell me that this is the end

    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies Writer/s: Stephen Percy Harris

  • Satan from HellIt's about suicide, his time is up, it couldn't last... he's telling lies to himself that he'll do more stuff in life, but he knows its not true.
  • GavI thought I read somewhere at the time that this song was to do with the last supper.
  • Ashleigh from Melbourne, AustraliaIt's actually "someday maybe i'll wait 'til then"
