  • I know what time is, time is a thief
    It'll steal into bed and rob you while you sleep
    And you'll never feel it
    It pulls off the covers, and rifles through your head
    Then you'll wake to find you can't remember what you just said...
    It happens to everyone...
    Just like the father of my father, time stole his mind
    And I can't forget that one-fourth of his blood is mine
    I try not to worry...

    Please don't come for me
    I promise I'll be great
    Just let me keep what's mine (let me keep what's mine)
    Please don't come for me
    If you must then just please wait and let me have some time (let me have some time)
    Please don't come for me
    Mind over matter (it don't matter) when you're as mad as a hatter

    It's hard to draw a clear distinction
    Who you are, who you were
    Through the looking glass, the past and future begin to blur
    And no-one can blame you
    Well they say the world is what you make it
    You think, speak and breathe
    And those rules still apply, stuck in a world of make believe
    You make the best with what you're given...

    Please don't come for me
    I promise I'll be great
    Just let me keep what's mine (let me keep what's mine)
    Please don't come for me
    If you must then just please wait and let me have some time (let me have some time)
    Please don't come for me
    Mind over matter (it don't matter) when you're as mad as a hatter

    Off with her head, off with her head
    Paint the roses, paint the roses
