Retrograde

(oehler/sheridan)

The sum of these moments
Is greater than the whole
The past reaches into present
Grabbing hold
Along this winding path
Never had foreseen
The sum of these moments
Turning me

Automatic pulling back
Fate and will run off the track
If I look now can I set them apart
Was time ticking from the start

For every choice
And every chance
Was each moment coupled
By circumstance
Once set into motion
Time gives way
Each bend in the road
Only a delay

Automatic shifting pace
Fate and will run their race
If I look now can I set them apart
Was time ticking from the start

Balance the scale
Tally the sum
Each moment hangs
By a pendulum
Back and forth
Or is it too late
The sum of these moments
Lies in wait

Automatic drawn into
Fate and will are in pursuit
If I look now can I set them apart
Time’s ticking from the start
