This song about the mystery of time revolves around a pun between the usual meaning of 'timeless' as being eternal and 'timeless' as being out of time.

Story behind the song
The song is about the mystery of time both as a feature of the universe and as the relentless march of a person from young to old. It includes a nod to Stephen Hawking who, with James Hartle, has proposed that the dimension of time was once like a space dimension.
1. Classic rock and punk from the '80s Alternative - it's all really the same Cool songs to play in each decade I like rock 'n' roll by any name . . . for it is timeless 2. Hawking says that time was once more space-like How then did the universe begin? Expanding away for eternity If there's no start then there can be no end . . . for it is timeless Bridge: My hair's going gray, old friends pass away And I don't long for the future any longer I see men in their prime grow old before their time, Yet I see myself grow stronger...for I am timeless 3. All the young have such uncertain futures At my age most paths are fully worn Time races on, so much to be done And I can't recall the day I was born . . . for I am timeless 4. Every year the students look younger Yet in some ways they always seem the same The candles on my cake just multiply It won't be long till the end of the game. . . then I'll be timeless . . . We all are timeless . . .
