The Great Wall

Time may flow over realizing goals that no one knows
And my friends – They’d never admit it though
Because they can block it out and continue to roll on
But me – I know
That everything’s about to blow away
For real this time and no one’s watching

All of my life I’ve dreamed about it
And now that it’s gone I can’t do without it
All of my life I’ve stood behind it
Like trying to hide The Great Wall of China

Flying above Heathrow
Never dreaming of the time or my dwindling cash flow
And I know – I never said
That a European climb isn’t starving my ego
One thing – I know
Is that everything’s about to blow away
For real this time and no one’s watching

All of this time I’m wasting on it
Preparing to see what the others think of it
Keeping in mind I’m still above it
But not very high because I’m only hovering

All of my life I’ve stood behind it
Like trying to hide The Great Wall
