lyrics

The Time Master bends all the rules, the Devil is over the clock
Beware of the metaphors he uses, his fingers will give you a shock
You’re singled out, he knows your name, but to him this is all just a game
Look ahead, and beware, the clock is ticking and this is what he shares:

“It’s a mortal decry that you’ll soon learn’s a lie, that your future will only hold pain
Cause it’s all just a game, a big joke to reframe, and your destiny’s yet to unfold.

So forget all your grasping, internal rehashing… what’s yours will come to you.
Stop all your pushing, attempts at controlling, it’s time to break all the rules.

So don’t be afraid
It’s time to get clear
And let go of fear, let go of fear

So give up on the cards and stop looking at stars, be present with what you see now,
All the twists and the turns, will help you learn, the solutions’ about to be found.

…Look ahead, and beware, the clock is ticking and he doesn’t care.
