Clock beating time on the wall
Seconds that turn into hours
Feeling the blood slow down
Who ran this thread through my heart?
They jerk it around when I’m sleeping
Tied to the railway line
Come on, get up! Come on, get up!
Pin the moment with sharp attention
I heard the sky is falling in
Might get torrential.
Days flicker by in a strobe
You mark off the year in the wavelength
Carving your own headstone
Schemes that have fallen apart
Echo through lines of your thinking
The person you’re reaching for
Clock beating time in my chest
Filtering light to a glimmer
Feeling the blood pressure
You pull all the filters down and saturate my eye
Its obvious - a universe pouring down.
