It looms tall and proud above me,
As the faces looks down to taunt me
And the ticking starts to drown me,
It watches twinkling as I fall.
Memories from my past dissolving,
The clicking hands go round not stopping
All the seasons quickly dropping,
While I lose the chance to know and feel wahts mine.
Across the earth it's proudly beating
Followed by the incessant ticking
While the hands keep slowly clicking
And I long to punch the face and stop the rhyme.
And the years fly by unceasing,
What I care for slowly leaving
But my heart still keeps on beating
Leaving a shell of broken hearts and empty minds
I know the heavy dong is dinging,
Hours pass without me hearing.
I never look up, I'm never hearing
Praying that its the last time I hear the chime
