Killing Time

I’m not sleeping tonight
Watching a world drained of light
Shadows connected stuck inside
No mourning, memed the loss of life

Every day is the same war
Wanting love but cutting ties
I’m reaching out but don’t get far
I’m calling out but no replies

So I’m just killing time
Nothing on my mind
Watching it all unwind
I’m just killing time

They keep selling the same war
Some will profit, most will die
If only they loved us more
They’d see truth not a supply

We don’t know what’s in store
There’s no distraction left to buy
If only we loved us more
Silly things we trade for time

So I’m just killing time
Nothing on my mind
Watching it all unwind
I’m just killing time

Are you sleeping
Alarms are going off
While you’re dreaming
They calculate the cost

Are you sleeping
Alarms are going off
The rain is coming
And the ceiling’s looking soft

Are you sleeping
Alarms are going off
They screamed fire
To thunderous applause

Are you sleeping
Alarms are going off
You pressed the button
But time doesn’t stop

So I’m just killing time
Nothing on my mind
Watching it all unwind
I’m just killing time
