Who will warn the rest of us when we're losing time?
We're losing time.

Who will warn the rest of us?
We're losing time to try to blend.

When blue pools warm the rest of us in the sand, cool the warming tide before tides fill our land.

I swear by my life, you lie!

Wait... why?
Land dries…
Seas rise…
My cries drown by a landslide.

You can't breathe under water, love.
Thought you would fly?
You can't fly forever, love.

Forevermore, you will adore a time when your land was inhabitable by more than roaches in the sand.

Darling, we've arrived; welcome to paradise!
That sun feels nice!

Open up your eyes and take in those scenic skies!
We're losing time to dance for the rain gods.

Then again, this freak show is all you ever wanted in the end.
