Lyrics:
The time is almost over
The people are divided
So come a little closer
I try now I can't fight it
Evoked the invective
Or penetrate the madness
We're counting down the minutes
From an hourglass full of ice

I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long

Can't you hear the country station
Coming from another car?
The broken air condition
No one has a clue where we are
'Cause things are getting scary
All covered in a secret
Buried in voluptuary
'Cause there's nowhere else to keep it

I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long long long

Be long

I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long long long

I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long

The false flag cast a shadow
Stratagems upon the stairs
When the dark became my eyes
The stars collide
I thought I saw how much is smoke
I need someone I can talk to

Silently
Silently
Oh so silently we go
Oh so silently we go
Oh so silently we go

Oh

Oh

I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long
I won't be long

I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long
I won't be long long long
I won't be long long long

The time is almost over
The time is almost over
