Time to stop….?


Opening doors and running through rooms

Running, running, running through dark rooms

Running through darkness, feeling the mud holding and clinging

Seeing faces from a past that never was

Hearing voices from a future never to be

Opening doors and running through rooms

Quick, quick, run, run

Don’t stay still, don’t let the door slam

Keep ahead of the crowd, ahead of your thoughts

Stay ahead of the truth, run through the room

Shut the door, shut it all in

Dare to breathe, dare to cry

Dare to live, yet dare to die?

Shut the door, stay in the room, crouch on the floor

Time for tears, time to cry

Lock the door, keep it all out

Tired, tired of running

Time to stop, time to slow, time to live, time to grow

Time to embrace the truth as it is

Step up to life to bury the lies

Swing the hatchet, hold it down

Come alive in the blood

As you roar, as you roar

Open the door and see all your fears

Open the door, see what it reveals

See life in a room that’s not gone wrong

Stay in one place, slow

Slow to a beat, take one breath

Chill to the beat. sing to the rhythm

Vibrate with life, flow with the pain

Be whole once again

It’s life, it’s hard, this is it, this is now

Hold on, hold on

Catch the light, catch the time

Catch the breath, catch the now!
