Citizen Fish — Time Control lyrics

I don't know who invented the clock/but it began a process that will never
Stop/at the age of six or seven or so/it was a decoration that went tick tock/
Then by ten they invented the watch/portable guidance till the hands fell off/
And a few years later it was luminous hands/then digital figures to help you
Understad/conditioned by punctuality/knew when to be there - but not where to
Be/we thought we could control the time/by always knwing what it was/now every
Action has a certain speed/as we let time control us/every technological step/
Is faster than the one before/watching the neighbours and the fashion shows/
To see if we need to know more/desparate to be one step ahead/loving to be
Followed but still needing to be led/so keep up the pace and keep in line/
You're either in the race or you're left behind/you may feel part of society
But the truth is more sublime/I said "stop! take a look around you"/but you
Never had the time
