lyrics

Staring at the clock in anticipation
Waiting for the sound of the starting gun
But how did I end up behind the curtain?
How was I left behind these walls?

Eyes trapped inside an hourglass
Dreams drowning in its sands
Elusive yearnings of the past
Subdued inside the man
Help me to put this into words
Someone can understand
Is there any reason to believe
That this isn't all there is to it

(It’s just a boundary in your mind)

The light's fading down the corridor
It must be now or never
Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind
Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind

So burn the candle at both ends
Only to dim the glow
Push to the limits just to reach
The unexceptional
Pause for a moment but you know
You have arrived too late
Watch everything that you have built
Collapsing underneath its weight

(Just break the boundary in your mind)

The light's fading down the corridor
It must be now or never
Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind
Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind

But down the rabbit hole the answer lies
Unraveling itself right before your eyes
One more time around, just one last chance
Before the clock runs out and you lose the race
The light shines mockingly, and keeps you still
The more you fight the more you seem to lose your will
So through the rabbit hole, you still hold on
The path is clearer now that the fear is gone

At times I fear it’s now forever
And sometimes I feel there’s no end in sight
Sometimes it seems there’s no tomorrow
Sometimes I can’t see an end to the night

Adrift in an ocean of questions unanswered
I sit here and await the sound of the starting gun
