just another damaged soul



have you lived today?


The clock is ticking in the night:

Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock!

Your thoughts are screaming in your mind:

Don’t stop! Don’t stop!

The moon is resting in the sky,

Ignores the clock

Your heart is beating like a drum,

It hears: Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock!

The cat is sleeping like a child,

Can’t read the clock

Your fears tear you up inside,

Time’s up! Time’s up!

The wind is yelling at your window:

Wake up! Wake up!

The earth is spinning around the sun,

Will it (n)ever stop?

You’re just a thread of dust,

Tick-Tock! Tick-Tock!
