Super 8

from by Mark McAdam

lyrics

When you go to the ocean hoping to recuperate
Does your vision start to flutter like it’s shot in super 8?
Do you fear for the counting down like five, four, three?
Does your frame begin to stutter, do you flicker just like me?
Singing where’s the time go
Where’s the time go

As if any explanation holds a key to wear around your throat
On fishing line
There goes some more time…

When you ride by the junkyard do you get that chill
Like someone’s calling you inside to stay?
And if you ever go down to look behind that gate
Will your visions all be handed back on reels of super 8?

Singing where’d the time go
Where’d the time go

Will we dream of the ocean
Will we pause or rewind
Will we trail off spinning once we’ve used our time
Or do you s’pose we’ll be projected
On the ones we’ve left behind?

Singing where’s the time go
Where’s the time go
Singing where’d the time go
Where’s the time go

As if any explanation holds a key
To wear around your throat on fishing line
