11 Minutes Away — The Neverending Sentence lyrics

How close did I come?
Perhaps i'll never know
The journey is so long
I wonder where it goes
The clock is ticking down
Until my car explodes
The bacon now is frying
7 cm from my nose

Will I make it in time?
Will it my life?
Driving down this similar road
The half-connected story told
Of things that can happen on the way
But obviously not today

How close did I get?
To where I wanted to be
Was I nearly there
Or did my windscreen decieve me
Apparently you can get cars
That can invent a landscape
On the screen in front of you
Until you make the mistake
Of trying to be
What you blatantly aren't
Maybe next August i'll see......
