Racing Against Time (Missing Persons)

Plotting-planning-preaching-panning Causing diversion for the pass under the table Who to know-what to show-where to go-when to blow Be wise to sleep with one eye open if you're able Running in-running out-running over-you're in doubt Running on a line in a circle 'neath a net Getting upset-wanting to forget-everything's a threat Feeling something wet, who said it's no sweat Racing against time-it's all I do Racing against time-I don't like to Racing against time-it's all I do Racing against time-I don't like to The clock keeps ticking-pieces of my life go slipping by I'm pushing forward-moving backward-and I don't know why The pressure's building-pressure's making it impossible Before you know it it's completely uncontrollable Wheeling-dealing-stealing-squealing Does this kind of life look interesting to you Modify-amplify-simplify-intensify It could be quite confusing just to watch me do what I do It's like I'm living in a situation comedy They've got me socializing with these absent entities Even when I'm reasoning in slow decaying orbits Public opinion isn't fast enough to grasp it
