No Time to Wonder – Written Sunday 30th September 2001 (Aged 26)

No Time to Wonder

there is no time to wonder
grab the future now
make it yours
before they steal the chance
or burn down your doors
there is no time for reason
the world is mad
i will not smile for the president
he just makes me sad
take every moment
and make it yours
be with people who are special
before they burn down your doors
i went to his house
but he was not home
and people still prayed
they did not want to be alone
take the future now
take now like a pirate
take it all and plunder
grab the future now
there is not time to wonder
