Time Is Running Out

Every day there's something new that's going around

Crazy people getting all dressed up to paint the town

Business men they shake their heads and then they frown

Everybody tries so hard to put them down



It seems to me that maybe they got something going

And if you don't make an effort, then you got no way to know

Time is running out



Woman, can you hear me clear?

I hope that you can

Before you go to sleep at night

Take care of your man



And if you want a love that will always be around forever

Then you finally get it, ah, but you ain't gonna have it together



Time is running out, running out

Time is running out, running out



Johnny drives a Thunderbird, he's in a big rage

Always being criticized for being his age

In his nose a safety pin and life's a razor blade

He's so sick of everything that's been made



It seems to me that maybe he's got bad frustration

And all we can do is try and give the right information

Oh, 'cause time is running out



Population on the move

So don't you delay

Get yourself right in the groove

'N' hear what I say

It's no good being lazy

You've got to get up on your feet and shout

'Cause it'll make you crazy

When you realise you've been left out



Time is running out, running out

Time is running out, running out

Time is running out, running out



In the future there's no room 

People standing on your toes

Mother nature's on the run 

Everybody's got a gun



Soldiers walking in the street

Giving off a lot of heat

There just ain't enough to eat

If you're poor, you've got no meat



Advertising in the sky

They like to stick it in your eye

So mad it will make you cry

All the things that you don't need



Trouble in the family (Said, separation and the [sea?])

There is no more unity (Remind me what it used to be)

Complications everywhere (It seems to me it has to be)

[?] people stare (You know it's true and)

Time is running out, running out

Time is running out, running out



Television in my home (People watching every day)

Someone's talking on the phone (I can't hear a word I say)

There's no time to be alone (There's no time to get away)

Wonder why your mind is blown (Nervous breakdown every day)



Take me where the air is clean 

To the country, fresh and green

I just cannot stand this pace

Sorry, but there's no such place



Time is running out, running out

(Repeat and fade)
