amused, silly, ha ha only serious

Pulling a C-kun

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find that ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

[long, sublime instrumental portion]

And you run and run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or a half page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in a quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone the song is over, thought I'd something more to say
--Pink Floyd - Time

One of my favorite songs...odd, considering that its theme is mortality and old age, and I'm not even eighteen yet.

If you think this is about you, you're wrong. :^) Just pasting a favorite song.
