""Bennett Lamb's been holed up in his shack Working ever patiently Clocks are ticking Bennett's headed back to New York 1983
To meet himself as a younger man Show the teenage him a perfect plan The stocks to buy girls not to date He knows the way to reinvent his future Un-make mistakes un-seal his fate
He's going back to change his choices Guided by his inner voices And visions that he'd seen Bennett built a time machine
Bennett Lamb's been five days wide awake He scrawled out every thought he had Complex calculations he did make All single-spaced on legal pads
He won't return to watch Babe Ruth To head off Mao or John Wilkes Booth To warn good people of the past Of earthquakes locust plagues or insurrection There's just one die he wants recast""
