Time, Time
This song is an examination of the concept of Time, it influences on us, our hopes to influence it, and how are modern strategies are basically the same as our cave dwelling ancestors.

Time, Time Lyrics
(Gibson/Carpenter/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1
Time, Time, one thing is surely true
about Time: it will always morph
into something quite different,
to a giant star or a dwarf.

Verse 2
Time, Time, one thing about your heart,
it retains a special enzyme
to learn to love what Time gave you
as a gift so oddly sublime.

Chorus
Time, Time,
you think you can change it,
or maybe rearrange it,
but just when you’ve exchanged it,
for what you want or said,
you see it rearranged
you instead.

Bridge
The eons of humans
on our little planet,
all seem to have proven
our usual gambit:
we’re still only hunting,
we’re still just gathering
through all our modern days . . .
just in more clever ways.

Instrumental

Finish Line

This song started with the feeling of never attaining all you want to achieve in life. It led to the realization you never get across the goal line, never get to spike the ball; or at least you rarely do.

Finish Line

(Gibson/Kelley 2017)

Verse 1

I’ve been struggling,

I’ve been struggling

so many years,

whistling past

life’s many fears,

doing anything

for my family.

Freedom has nothing

Freedom has nothing

to do with being free;

to free my children

means struggle for me.

Chorus

I try and try and try and try,

don’t deny my fate, only defy.

Things never turn out just fine.

When do I cross the finish line?

Oh, when do I cross the finish line?

Short Instrumental

Verse 2

I’ve always heard,

I’ve always heard

if you love someone,

someone, you should

someone you should

set them free,

never made

any sense to me.

Freedom has nothing,

Freedom has nothing

to do with being free;

to free my wife

means struggle for me.

Bridge

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Freedom has nothing,

Freedom has nothing

to do with being free;

to free myself

means struggle for me.

Chorus

I try and try and try and try,

don’t deny my fate, only defy.

Things never turn out just fine.

When do I cross that finish line?

Oh, when do I cross the finish line?

Bridge

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Oh, Oh, Oh

Finish Line
