Weapons Fly

Black the sky
Weapons fly
Lay them waste for your race

Wish Away Each Day

Porcupine Tree's "Fear of a Blank Planet" album cover. [Formatted]

I never want to be old and I don’t want dependence
It’s no fun to be told that you can’t blame your parents anymore

I’m finding it hard to hang from a star
I don’t want to be—I never want to be old

Sullen and bored the kids stay and in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play and in this way wish away each day

I don’t really know if I care what is normal
I’m not really sure if the pills I’ve been taking are helping

The waste in my life—
I’m hurting inside—
I don’t really know, and I’m not really sure

Sullen and bored the kids stay and in this way wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play and in this way wish away each day

The Fever Pushing the Day By

I pull off the road east of Baldock and Ashford
Feeling for my cell in the light from the dashboard

Hissing from the road, the smell of rain in the air-con
Maybe check the news or just put a tape on

Lighting up a smoke
I’ve got this feeling inside me, it don’t feel too good

If I close my eyes and fell asleep in this layby, would it all subside: the fever pushing the day by?

Motor-window wind, I could do with some fresh air
Can’t breathe too well

I guess I should go now—
She’s waiting to make up, to tell me she’s sorry, and how much she missed me
—I guess I’m just burnt out
I really should slow down
I’m perfectly fine, but I just need to lie down—

We will grow old together

She waits for me

Time Flies icon-external-link-12x12 icon-search-12x12 (track 09 from The Incident double LP)

I was born in ’67
The year of Sgt. Pepper
And Are You Experienced?

Into a suburb of heaven
Yeah, it should’ve been forever
It all seemed to make so much sense

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
‘Cause time flies

She said luck is all you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let’s dance a while

She said nothing ever happens
If you don’t make it happen
And if you can’t laugh then smile

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
‘Cause time flies

And laughing under summer showers
Is still the way I see you now

How does time break down
With no marker things slow down
A conference of the strange
And your family is deranged

I could tell you what I’m thinking
While we sit here drinking
But I’m not sure where to start

You see there’s something wrong here
I’m sorry if I’m not clear
Can you stop smoking your cigar?

But after a while
You realize time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
‘Cause time flies

And the coat your wore to Alton Towers
It’s still the way I see you now
