time control lyrics – citizen fish

i don’t know who invented the clock/but it began a process that will never
stop/at the age of six or seven or so/it was a decoration that went tick tock/
then by ten they invented the watch/portable guidance till the hands fell off/
and a few years later it was luminous hands/then digital figures to help you
understad/conditioned by punctuality/knew when to be there – but not where to
be/we thought we could control the time/by always knwing what it was/now every
action has a certain speed/as we let time control us/every technological step/
is faster than the one before/watching the neighbours and the fashion shows/
to see if we need to know more/desparate to be one step ahead/loving to be
followed but still needing to be led/so keep up the pace and keep in line/
you’re either in the race or you’re left behind/you may feel part of society
but the truth is more sublime/i said “stop! take a look around you”/but you
never had the time
