Lyrics
Everyone will answer it in the end
Everyone will answer it in the end
Who are you?
I don’t know.

Everyone will answer it in the end
Everyone will answer it in the end
How old are you?
Far too old.

I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not waiting for the end
I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not waiting for the end

Everyone will answer it in the end
Everyone will answer it in the end
What did you do?
Not enough.

Everyone will answer it in the end
Everyone will answer it in the end
Where are you?
Far from home.

I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not waiting for the end
I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not WAITING FOR THE END

[instrumental]

I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not waiting for the end!
I’m not waiting for the…
I’m not waiting for the end!

Time won’t wait for me so
I won’t wait for it
Time won’t wait for me so
I won’t wait for it
Time won’t wait for me so
I’m not waiting for the end

Footnotes
The majority of the songs on this EP were written around very simple chord sequences that repeat throughout the song and nowhere is this more apparent than in the opening track, which contains all of two chords. For an opening track, I wanted something punchy – or, at least, punchier than The Time Machine on FGJ! – and I think Answers delivers a decent first swing.

One of the main reasons I find the Hometaping project so exciting and liberating is that if forces me to ignore my bad habit of being a perfectionist. I was never fully happy with the vocal recording on this track, but when you have limited time you can’t wait forever for the day when your voice is just so – you have to do your best and make do. And that’s what happened here.
