See The Time
words and music by Steve Gregoropoulos (Temple Bells, BMI administered by BMG)

When you get to the days where the sequences fall
and and the light is diffused on flickering walls
there are shadows that play like masters of light
an aquarium blue in the shivering night
when the doves fly off, a kaleidoscope dawn
the Italian palazzo, the tiny sparkles
you can see the time
you can see the time
you can see the time in a million directions

when the countries unite in a chaos of words
then the seams come apart, swarms of birds
a pebble in the water and the surfaces shatter
into thousands of mirrors of collapsible matter
and the universe is spinning like a disco ball
and there’s nothing big and there’s nothing small
you can see the time
you can see the time
you can see the time in a million faces of type

this is the letter ball
we have a way to disintegrate it all
you can see the time
