If only we capture time
put it behind bars
if only, if only
we’ll meet again
behind the noose.

If only we capture time
write it behind words
if only, if only
we’ll meet again
behind the pages.

If only we capture time
paint it behind colours
if only, if only
we’ll meet again
behind the canvas.

If only we capture time
bury it behind our backyard
if only, if only
we’ll meet again
behind our shards.

If only we capture time
murder it behind the arena
if only, if only
we’ll meet again
behind the masks.
