To the last guy | Reviewer: Roy | 10/22/12
Apparently you only listened to this song, then. The entire cover of this album by The Flaming Lips is superb, almost as great as the original.
However, it still doesn't compare to listening to DSOTM through.
what | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/6/11
i listened to the flamming lips cover and honestly why listen to that when Pink Floyd's version is so much better. I good cover thats not just the same generic covers is Dubside of the moon by the Easy Star All-Stars
Time is timless. | Reviewer: BDAqua | 10/7/11
Whew, it's uncanny, the musical heart beat, the alarm, not only are the words prophetic, but uncannily it not only rhymes, but has no added words to make it rhyme!???
Pure genius, & the theme actually carries out in oh so many of their songs/albums from Atom Heat Mother onwards to the end.
Astronomy Domine, Echoes, Comfortably Numb, The Wall,etc...
Buddhist Translation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/12/11
I'm translating a Buddhist text right now with some friends, where it talks a lot about the fleeting nature of time, and how we shouldn't let it go by in vain. It immediately reminded me of this song, so I read some lines of it. Everyone really liked it.
Cover by the flaming lips | Reviewer: AJ | 11/5/10
This song is one of the most beautiful, meaningful songs of all time. The entire album was. The flaming lips covered the entire album and released it, and for all you true floyd fans its worth listening to, trust me. The first time i listened to the cover of time, when the vocals started, i started tearing, it was beautiful. Listen to the cover, your life won't be the same :)
For Mike | Reviewer: Jo | 10/3/10
@Jean. There is a lot of comfort in this song. I know your nephew hears you, keep playing the song, talk to him, he hears you. I am sorry for your loss, I lost my brother to suicde in 05. May they be at peace.
Ode to Mike | Reviewer: Jean | 9/5/10
I used to send these lyrics to my son or just play the song to his voice mail, periodically, to remind him we are only on the planet a short time.
He was trying to regain his lost high school years at the time. It became our reality check with each other. We spoke "Floydian" to each other for many happy years.
Sadly, he passed on at the age of 44. I know he is shining on as my crazy diamond.
Remaining comfortably numb, I will celebrate his life with his brother, sister and my granddaughter at the wall concert in 2010. Thirty years after I attended the original.
I know he'll nod if he can hear us.
Fritter away... | Reviewer: Piers | 8/4/10
This song scares the shit out of me, because the lyrics sound so much like me. Thankfully I'm still 18 and on my way to working at what I love. Thankyou Pink Floyd for making a song this catchy with such an important message as well. Now I'll never forget it.
The hour is late | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/14/10
I remember writing about this song in an English exam I had back in high school. I was supposed to choose a poem we had studied during the semester, but nothing resonated with me the way this song did.
As a 16 year old kid the words both summarized my present and warned me of a possible future. That was almost 30 years ago now. So far my life has been lived with few regrets.
Sure, I never wrote that great novel I had always planned on ("Half a page of scribbled lines" and the rest)but I had been all through China and lived in Tibet twice by the time I was 22. I've watched the sun set over the Ganges in Banares and seen it rise over Machu Picchu. I've loved and I've laughed and I've lived.
If tomorrow never comes, then I'm grateful for the time I've had. Life is but a moment, and the hour is always late.

" And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking,Racing around to come up behind you again,The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older,Shorter of breath and one day closer to death "
They are more than just words more than just a song, Thank you Pink Floyd this song never die.
A timeless poem made into a song | Reviewer: TA | 6/11/10
I probably first heard this song when I was in my twenties, but I don't think the words resonated with me at tht time. I think I was in my thirties when I connected with it again and ever since that time the words have become stronger with each year I live. I sort of consider my change from indifference to deep recognition and reflection to be much like the words of the song - "Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day. Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way" would describe my teens when time seemed limitless, it was if it couldn't pass quickly enough in order that I graduate from secondary school and get on with my life as a young adult. "Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town. Waiting for someone or something to show you the way. Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain. And you are young and life is long and there is time to kill today" is an extension of that abundance of time, however now as I pass through my twenties, university a graduate degree, at this stage I am beginning to recognize that time is running and maybe there could have been better, more constructive uses of that abundance of time I pissed away in my youth.
"And then one day you find ten years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun" is reflective of the cold stark reality that time will eventually run out for us all and that there is no time like th future to make the most of each day, whatever that may be, a smile to a stranger, holding the door for the person behind you, giving some change to the guy on the street corner with his hand out, that there's no "I'll do it tomorrow". If you do, you've "missed the staring gun". Life begins today, and every day is new and you have to make the most of it. don't ever go to sleep thinking you wasted the day. Always consider what good you can do in a day and go to sleep content for what you have done and try to do better the next day. I believe that is the best we can do, to always try to do good each day and then wake-up the next and try to do even better.
"What Is your life? You are like a mist that appears for a little while, and then vanishes..." | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/10
I love the lyrics of this song and have understood it more and more as I've gotten older.
It's amazing to me how many plans we make and dreams we have that will probably still be unfulfilled when we eventually die. "Time waits for no man" and it does seem to speed up with age.
I remember at some point in my late 20's it hit me: this is IT. I'm an adult now, I'm done with school, and I'm getting older! I, too, felt like I'd missed the starting gun. I think we're so conditioned to be guided and led through our younger years that it's a bit of a shock when we realize it's all up to us now.
I also relate to what the anonymous reviewer of 4/3/09 posted -- that it seems that most people, in the "prime of their lives," spend a large percentage of their time, energy and resources planning for their eventual retirement. Funny how we spend the first 18-20 years of our life dreaming about one day being an adult, then spend the rest of our working lives focused on our final years! Seems kind of tragic.
I don't think it's realistic to live each day like it's your last (otherwise you might be tempted to ignore the consequences of certain actions), but I also don't think you should let life pass you by because you're dreaming about the future.
If you like this song, you might also like "Time Stand Still" by Rush. Some great lyrics in that one as well! "Time stand still; I'm not looking back, but I want to look around me now..."
This is mine | Reviewer: Lamma della fede | 2/27/10
I feel somewhere when I catch up with this song. I am a new teenager, but wish I live in their glorious moment. It's a magical stuff from their mind their era. I won't consumed by new recent junk song. It's all crap o shit. One of my favorite songs.
PINK FLOYD!The best band ever . . .
nishant.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/26/10
I think you missed the point. The song never mentions society or anything that would resemble it.
"Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines"
It doesn't matter what you do, how you do it, or who you do it with. Only that, something be accomplished with your life that at least you can be proud of yourself for, even if no one else knows of your accomplishments... to not die in sorrow and regret...
If you're happy and fulfilled shoveling shit, then shovel shit.
If you're a malcontent then do whatever it is that makes you fulfilled. If that means sitting under a tree smoking dope singing songs or whatever it is, then do that.
If you're going to be fulfilled as president of whatever country you're from, then do that. Or maybe you might be satisfied with senate, or parliament seat? Each has his own.
If you're happy and fulfilled working at a bank, then work at a bank.
It doesn't matter who you are, what you believe or what you hope to achieve in life, the song certainly applies to all. Like I previously said, it's about being able to die with a smile on your face.
The person you are today, isn't the person you're going to be tomorrow. Some of the thing you thought didn't matter today, might matter tomorrow, and some things you thought mattered might not matter at all to you in the future.

Nishant, When you said, "What is most important is to do what you should. And if you do not do that .. life will always be a question for you...Yes do not question life for the heck of it. Do what SHOULD be done. Live your life in the moment leads you to SEX / DRUGS / ALCOHOL. And then as this song says ... you are older." Now who are you to say that you know what "should" be done to have a good life? That seems completely ignorant to me that there is a way that we "should" live. If you disagree with how society tells you you "should" live, then I'd say you'd b happier not doing what you "should." Even if you don't have what society calls a good future ahead of you, it is still very possible to b happy. Also, I know many people that do what they "should" to make a good future, and they still aren't happy. But other than that I agree that our happiness is inside of us for us to find. Time is short so do something about it, but it sure as heck doesn't have to be what Nishant or society tells you is right.
