about

Originally released on "Control of Electromagnetic Radiation (2009)"

lyrics

I tried to write a song for you, but you know how it goes
I tried to keep the secret but somehow everyone knows
I had to build a bridge to get this far
Just to stand in sight of where you are

Oh sweet, sweet time
The ticking clock and then the sounding chime.
All the world will try to tell you
All the world will try to sell you
Oh, sweet sweet time

Oh sweet, sweet time
The ticking clock and then the sounding chime.
Everything that will obsess you
Everyone that will possess you
Oh, sweet sweet time

I tried to write a song for you, but you know how it went
Nothing new under the sun with all the money spent
I had to build a bridge to get this far
Just to stand in sight of where you are
