Time

.

What do you do when time stands still?

When the minutes seem to stop,

When the hours go on forever

And the days lie forgot.

.

When all the things you thought you knew

Have simply turned to dust.

When the cogs have all stopped turning

And will soon begin to rust.

.

What do you do in the time

A penny takes to drop?

Will you run to catch it?

Or say you'd rather not?

.

What do you do when all the things

You knew have turned to ash?

Will you find a way to fix it?

Can you stand to watch things crash?

.

What would you do if I told you

That the sky was shining bright

With a whirlwind bright with fire

In the middle of the night?

.

I guess it's only normal

If you cannot see that far.

If you can't see the wonder

Of the machinery of stars.

.

Everything is connected

Like a giant moving clock

And it only takes a moment

For everything to stop.
