Father Time
Long John

The web sends her whispers into the wind,
"We'll be here forever. We need you."
You know it is true, and so you rush in.
Do you wish Father Time would speed you?

"Welcome. You've got mail!" she'll say.
Do you see your destiny near you?
Have you noticed your life slipping away?
Do you wish Father Time would fear you?

Do you long for your sweeter young days?
I'm sorry, dear one, they don't know you.
Your pining is wasted as life flits away.
Do you wish Father Time would slow you?

When you're moving too fast in the dim light,
Does Memory Lane ever scare you?
Time can pass slowly, but never at night.
Do you wish Father Time would spare you?

As your life swiftly passes you by,
As regrets spring out to greet you,
Looking back only ends pain's brief respite.
Do you wish Father Time would heal you?

You're not Time's child and he's not your friend.
Your days have been numbered for you.
Your desperate hunger only speeds your end.
Do you wish Father Time would ignore you?

The web sends her whispers into the wind,
"We'll be here forever. We need you."
With her siren's call she beckons you in,
So that Father Time can bleed you.
