What if?

What would you do if you could stop time?
What if you could look down on your wristwatch
And just say

The sound of the clock on the wall would stop
The sound of pretty much everything would stop
What if you create for yourself
A very own, personal, limbo?

Would you take to the streets
And do whatever you want?
Would you catch up on your sleep?
Would you read?

What would you do?

Would you drop out of college?
Who needs education?
You could steal all the food and money you want

The world would be your playground,
So would you become a superhero
And save the innocent kids from the bullies
Or would you become a superbully?

You could always be the cool scientist
Stop time and step ahead of light
Or you could become famous for your ability
What would you do?

If everything that was in motion
Would freeze in mid air
If everything that was still
Became stiller
Would you take that time
To appreciate the beauty of the world?

What would you do
If the world stops for you
Would you give in to all of that pressure
And never use that power again?

Or would you finally become free
To be the animal you once were?
Would you let the world remain frozen?
And live the rest of your life in solitude

What if someone else has already made that decision for you?
What if we all are actually frozen?
And everything seems like it’s changing, but nothing is
What if it’s all the same?
It’s all the same…
