You're not afraid of the end of the earth.
You say death is a form of rebirth.
When time stops it'll move in reverse.
It's a probable fate, but that don't make it a curse.

If time and space expand like a rubber band
then one day it's gonna snap and come back into your hand,
and everything that has ever happened
will unhappen, then happen again.
It's just a matter of when.

The fortune tellers are the sellers of day dreams.
They know its easy to kill time with the mind at ease.
They put their palms together or get on their knees,
and put their faith in a better place
or one where they would rather believe.

You can spend your whole life a lot like cash,
collecting things that you'd rather not have
as a means to make the time pass,
but spare time and loose
change put to good use
burn twice as fast.

What if you're right and tonight is our last night here?
Would you cry? Would you care?
Would you think of where
you could have lived your life differently
or where you're gonna spend eternity?
If you live a life that you'd want to relive
then it's best to invest in all the time that you give.
