I'm leaving today
Before it all starts to unravel
And I am sentenced by the gavel
And the world outside explodes

I've discovered time travel
I've discovered how not to die
And many other mysteries of life
But none as sweet as you

In a grave that I dug for myself
Many years ago
I left some instructions
For a life I'll one day know
Have I forgotten you
Or have we just met
A sallow picture tucked in a pack of cigarettes
Here and now this is all I have left

And in that grave that I dug for myself
On what feels like yesterday
Many currencies of many different countries
And many passports of many different names
I've been here before (I've been here before)
And I know what's next
A sallow picture clutched deep against your chest
Here and now is where I draw my last breath

I've discovered time travel
It's a cruel and hollow hall
That only fools will wallow in
Where does it start?
Where does it end
