In Distress

This song is by The End and appears on the album Elementary (2007).

Said the metropolis to the ocean depths, amidst its vast and murky expanses
For how much longer must we all hold our stale breaths?
Our lungs are stretched
And will we ever stop feeling anxious, and when will we rest?
Our laurels have been picked
And then the tides boldly replied in chorus the waves did roar
Against the open shores

Timelessness is but a mere instant and you missed it
It slipped right through the cracks and in between your calloused fingertips
And there it goes again

Said the blind fawn to the circled pack of predators that had gathered in the wooded clear
I never once questioned my life's purpose or my self worth
And as the saliva strands soaked into the earth, she spoke these final words
And a serene hush fell throughout the forest
Her infant voice was ominous

Timelessness is but a mere instand and you missed it
It slipped right through the cracks and in between your calloused fingertips
And there it goes again

F*** it, it cannot be caught
There are no pauses in this bleak and tragic drama
You've only got a minute so what will you do with it?
Oh, f*** it, you've missed it once again
It died within a breath

The eleventh hour
It's now or never
You'll lack luster when it's over
At least then feign despair
It's a brilliant flicker, the point of the pen
The jagged peak of the fabled mountain
Now you can say you've been

Down, down, down into a dismal dire spiral
Follow the arrows they will show us all the way
Down, down, down were not getting any closer
But at least it feels better than standing still
Down, down and lost within the segments of the circle
All the radians are as brilliant as the sun
Down, down, down without a hint of feeling remorse
For the mirriage of the chasm to the falling swan
