So this is the hour that ended all time?
And the wave that shook us all.
I stand staring across the future
The lineage of time, becomes infinitely small.
You can win every race that you enter
And fall at every hurdle you see
But the trick of getting it right each time
Is something I know not, luckily.
Staring up at the ferris wheel looming
The bright lights luring you in.
You shook hands with the cotton candy seller
But balked as the fat lady sings.
The music finally played out
You knew it was time to go home
But the devil plays sad tunes inside you
The dream one day of a throne.
For now the gates close sharply
Your mind it starts to swirl,
About all the things you dare to do
At the carnival that ate the world.
