lyrics

Missing time
We killed the night
But I didn't want to go
I didn't want to go
Back in to that light

Chemicals
Cloud around the hall
Sting your pure eyes
But it's sweeter than you know
It's sweeter than you know
Impossible

The day is short
The task is great
And I am idle

The day is short
The task is great
And I am idle

The mind is willing but the body resists
The fight is over but the pain persists

Tell me when I've had enough
Oh tell me when I've had enough
I've had enough
I've had enough

The day is short
The task is great
And I am idle
