Just a matter of time, till you run out of breath   
Money mountains you climb, never hedging your bets   
But your luck can run out, you'd better watch your step   
Just a matter of time   

Just a matter of days, till the factory's done   
When they shut down the lathes 'cause the work has all gone   
And nobody cares 'cause there's no-one   
It's just a matter of days   

I know what you mean and I suppose I agree   
I'm a bit pushed for time, please don't bother me   
Take you guidance elsewhere, 'cause I've heard it before   
In case is not very clear, I don't care anymore   

Just a matter of hours until you're forgotten   
Your pushing up flowers, and you're used to the rot   
So that was your life, didn't manage a lot   
Just a matter of hours   

I know what you mean and I suppose I agree   
I'm a bit pushed for time, please don't bother me   
Take you guidance elsewhere, 'cause I've heard it before   
In case is not very clear, I don't care anymore   
I know... care anymore (repeat till end...)
