Nothing But Time
written by: Jak Locke

version 6:
from Loud As Me (September 28th 2020) (4:18)
Looking out the window for a day or two with the sun above the roof
Kicking back and waiting for to sober up with a vodka 80 proof
Listen to the cars and people passing by as the fan blades go around
Now my phone is ringing as I take a drag, pick my phone up off the ground

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Talking to my girl until I hear a knock and I tell her "call you back"
Open up the door and it's my boy Dennis in his beat up Cadillac
Cruising down the highway with a paper bag wrapped around my day's intent
Park at the apartments, pass another hour just to know that it's been spent

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Over to the club after the sun goes down, see my friends up at the bar
Buy another beer to wash the liquor down, we shoot pool for about an hour
Get back to the house around three A.M., not worried about no strife
I'm not really sure just what tomorrow brings and that's my kind of life

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Listen to the cars and people passing by as the fan blades go around
Now the phone is ringing as I take a drag, pick the phone up off the ground

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Talking to my girl until I hear a knock and I tell her "call you back"
Open up the door and it's my boy Scotty in his beat up Cadillac
Cruising down the highway with a paper bag wrapped around my day's intent
Park at the apartments, pass another hour just to know that it's been spent

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

version 4:
from Yellow Light District (October 15th 2003) (4:15)
Looking out the window for a day or two with the sun above the roof
Kicking back and waiting for my pager's hum with a vodka 80 proof
Listen to the cars and people passing by as the fan blades go around
Feel my pager buzz against my belt and hip, pick my phone up off the ground

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Talking to my girl until I hear a knock and I tell her "call you back"
Open up the door and it's my boy Dennis in his beat up Cadillac
Cruising down the street and never stopping once on our way to anywhere
Waving hi to people I don't even know, they wave back if they don't care

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine

Over to the club after the sun goes down, see my friends up at the bar
Buy a couple beers to wash the liquor down, shoot some pool for about an hour
Get back to the house around three A.M., not worried about no strife
I'm not really sure just what tomorrow will bring, man if this ain't the life, yeah

Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
Nothing but time time time is that a crime
Nothing on my mind mind mind and that's just fine
