Tick Tock

by Raj-Beer

Tick Tock, Tick Tock, Tick Tock
The cataract sound of the contemptuous clock

Ticking every second
Tocking every minute
Taunting our minds
Tainting our spirits
Thrusting fear into our hearts

I fear the ticking and tocking
Each tick makes me tremble
Each tock brings turbulence

I fear because time is running out
One day the clock will stop
Iíll be left lying face-first in the dirt
Lifeless

I can feel it coming
I can feel time running

Tick
I can feel my pulse bumping furiously
Tock
I feel perspiration and frustration
Tick Tock
The clock wonít stop from stopping
Memories simultaneously rushing through my head
Smiling as Iím relive them
Tick Tock
So many accomplishments I have yet to accomplish
So many experiences I have yet to experience
Too many promises I have yet to fulfill

Me versus Life and its deceptive conception
I have yet to win

I fear because time is running out
One day the clock will stop
Iíll be left lying face-first in the dirt

I can feel it coming
I can feel time running

Trembling from the clockís turbulence
Fear constantly injected in my veins

The clock will stop
Iím sweating each tick
My heart skips a beat each tock

The cataract sound of the contemptuous clock.
