lyrics

just as the camera clicks
something within you snaps
just as the image writes
saved in a fibrous light

you close your left eye and then
screw up your right
so it makes a memory.

just as the camera clicks
a new memory is formed.
just as the image writes

you save a second in your mind's eye as an era.
a visual reminder of a feeling.
it needs you now to have a leg.
you made it seem important.

i'm older.
my heart is beating slower.
but time is moving faster.
and time is less elastic.
and time is ever fleeting.
i'm bleeding on a poster,
i cut my finger open.
and time is moving slower.

my heart is beating faster.
and time is more elastic.
hold tight or it will leak out.
HOLD TIGHT OR IT WILL LEAK OUT.

my heart is beating slower.
but time is moving faster.
and time is less elastic.
and time is ever fleeting.

i'm bleeding on a poster.
i cut my finger open.

time moves too close
i can't focus.

just as the camera clicks
a moment is frozen.
and written to a memory.
broken, selectively saving what's important.

the camera clicks,
a moment is frozen.
and written to a memory.
broken, selectively saving what's important.

you gave legs to this.
