lyrics

he Past is Gone and you canst not that recall
The Future is Not, and may never be at all
But the Present is, So improve the Flying Hour,
Because the present only, is within thy power.

Don't you move a muscle, stay real, real still
Can't you hear the sound of the siren? This is not a drill
So boy you better concentrate, stick em up and pay attention
Keep your hands where I can see them, this is an intervention

The Past is Gone and you canst not that recall
The Future is Not, and may never be at all
But the Present is, So improve the Flying Hour,
Because the present only, is within they power.

You can keep on knocking, but you can't come it
It ain't about where you're going, ain't about where you've been.

The Past is Gone and you canst not that recall
The Future is Not, and may never be at all
But the Present is, So improve the Flying Hour,
Because the present only, is within they power.
