Time to market

You were sitting at your office desk
Some skin and meat in your hand
Watching your life passing right through
It didn’t turn out the way it was planned

Suddenly it strikes you
Time is all that remains
The magnificence of your future
Is held back by thick chains

Time
Time to market
Put yourself on the line
Time
Time to market
And selling out is not a crime
And selling out is not a crime

At the gates of your personal Eden
In the back seat of your car
You great your personal army
They all treat you like a star

Suddenly it strikes you
All you got from life was scars
The magnificence of your future
Is held back by thick bars

Time
Time to market
Put yourself on the line
Time
Time to market
And selling out is not a crime
And selling out is not a crime

It’s a shame
