Tick Tock, Goes the Clock

Time will do what time does and run out.

planetdestiny

Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock


A machine, the system has turned us into

Close your eyes, walk the pattern set for you

Devoid of emotions, all our decision boil down to.

Why then do we wonder what, each day, we go through


Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock


Life has become a struggle because we’ve forgotten to feel.

Forgotten what truly matters, what is real.

Trapped under emotions we labeled to hard to deal.

We locked out true bliss, in the name of ease, and on it, put a seal.


Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock


But I wanna paint on walls, and dance on the street.

I wanna take wind under my wings and feet.

I wanna jump from mountains that are oh so steep

Have conversations, not small talk, but actually deep


Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock


I wanna make friends and spread smiles.

Discovering the oceans and on land the miles.

Face with strength my troubles and trials.

Stay in the moment, be truly happy for a while.


Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock


There is no other way to live this life but in the present

Experiencing life, your joy will augment.

This life is not taken but lent.

Make sure your proud of each moment spent.


Tick tock, goes the clock

Tick tock! Tick tock.

Herded in and out of spaces, we flock.

Tick tock, goes the clock
