The ticking of the clock,
Like the beating of my heart
Remains consistent through this fight.
Hush, go to sleep now,
Please tell me a story
Just to get me through the night.
Close my eyes and shield me,
From the raging world outside
Thatwe are faced with in the day.
While these hours are precious,
Inspiration in the dead of night
That in the morning has faded away.
In the darkness, thoughts intensify,
And at once we come to our senses
Just for a moment, it's all so clear.
Silence, calm yourself down,
The truth is revealed after hours
And it is ourselves that we fear.
