The Ballad Of Barry Allen

This song is by Jim's Big Ego and appears on the album They're Everywhere! (2003).

I've got time to think about the beauty of a thousand variations
Of the beating of a wing
Of a hummingbird suspended in the aspic of the world
Moving slower than molasses
As I'm off to catch the girl
Who is falling off the bridge

And I'm there before she knows it
I'll be gone before she sees me
Got my hand around her waist
I pull her back to safety
By the time she knows what's happened
There will be someone else who needs me
Because time keeps dragging on

And on, And on, And on
Time keeps dragging on
Time keeps dragging on

I've got time to think about my past
As I dodge between the bullets
How my life was so exciting
Before I got this way
And how long ago it was now I never can explain
By the clock that's on the Tower
Or the one that's in my brain

And I'm there before you know it
I'll be gone before you see me
And I'd like to get to know you
But you're talking much too slowly
And I know you wanna thank me
But I never stick around
Because time keeps dragging on

And on, And on

And you say the time goes rushing by
But it seems so slow to me
And you see a blur around you fly
But it takes too long
It seems so slow to me

Time keeps dragging on

I wish I'd never gone into my lab
To experiment that night
Before lightning flashed around me
And time changed speed
Now I gotta try to be so patient until calamity will strike
Because when things change in an instant
It's almost fast enough for me

And I'll be there before you know it
I'll be gone before you see me
And do you think you can imagine
Anything so lonely
And I know you'd really like me
But I never stick around
Because time keeps dragging on
And on...

And you say the time goes rushing by
But it seems so slow to me
And you see a blur around you fly
But it takes so long
It seems so slow

And you say the time goes rushing by
But it seems so slow to me
And you complain I'm gone before you blink your eye
But it takes so long
It seems so slow to me

And you say the time goes rushing by
But it seems so slow to me
And I want to be there while you laugh or cry
But it takes too long
It seems so slow to me

Time keeps dragging on
