When the sun sets, pink streaks across the blackening sky
Like red Hawaiian Punch spilled
On a blue plastic tablecloth

When the sun sets, darkness grips the Earth
Like an iron fist closing
Oh-so-slowly

When the sun sets, the stars twinkle merrily
Like sleigh bells from
Our childhood fantasies

When the sun sets, time seems to slow
Like an old, run-down clock
Only seconds remain
