There's a wall inside you
And it wants to smash your head
If you know time

There's a door inside you
And it wants to slam you shut
If you know time
If you know time at all
If you know time

There's a law inside you
With a real enforcing sherriff
with a badge, a gun and claw

There's a man inside you
With his fingers at the wheel
He crashes you
No matter how you feel
Now you know time
If you know time at all
If you know time

There's a voice inside me
An eraser in my head
You know I love you
You know that's what I said
I can walk you through the rain
I can see your face again
If you know time
If you know time at all
If you know time

In the war that's coming
Setting good guys against good
It's always a good cause 
You fight because you should
You can cut them down like weeds
But you'll never make them love you
Don't you know time
Don't you know time at all
Don't you know

If you know
If you know
If you know time
