Lyrics

Part IX - Gone in the Blink of an Eye
(Words and music – M. Trueack, S. Timms)

Gone… in the blink of an eye
Gone… in the blink of an eye

Are you frightened…, of what the future might hold?
Are you paralyzed…, by what some prophet has told?
You bottle it in…, ‘til you’re ready to explode
So you live in the moment…, but you carry the load
Don’t think about the day when it all could be…,

Gone… in the blink of an eye
Gone… in the blink of an eye
You’re left wondering where it all went wrong
In a matter of minutes…, it could all be gone…,
Gone in the blink of an eye

Do you live for tomorrow…, but forget today?
With so many around you…, you feel alone anyway
You can’t predict the future…, no matter how hard you pray
Don’t think about the day when it all could be…,

Gone… in the blink of an eye
Gone… in the blink of an eye
You’re left wondering where it all went wrong
In a matter of minutes…, it could all be gone…,
Gone in the blink of an eye

No premonitions…, it’s all completely unknown
You can’t decode the future…, there’s no Rosetta Stone
In a web you’re entangled…, with no way back home
Innocence is strangled…, reasons overthrown

Do we all want to live forever?
Do we all want eternal life?
Who’s frightened of dying?
Who’s frightened to live?
Don’t think about the day when it all could be…,

Gone… in the blink of an eye
Gone… in the blink of an eye
You’re left wondering where it all went wrong
In a matter of minutes…, it could all be gone…,
Gone in the blink of an eye
Where did it all go wrong?
In a matter of minutes…, it was all long gone…,
Gone in the blink of an eye
