And you wish that you could stop it, but the handle’s out of reach
You’re sinking like a calliope in a whirlpool

And you’re waiting for the green light
Still waiting on a cold opportunity
You’re waiting for the green light
As every second of your life keeps slipping, the time keeps ticking
And the green light
is looking like it’s never gonna come through for you.

A coincidence, but a weirdly perfect one.
