Early Morning

The clock is ticking
Time is running out
When will it go off?
Flashing red numbers

Time is running out
Early in the morning
Flashing red numbers
My eyes flutter open with curiosity

Early in the morning
As the sun is rising
My eyes flutter open with curiosity
Expecting an alarm of noise

As the sun is rising,
Fearing the cacophonous noise.
Expecting an alarm of noise,
When will it explode with sound?

Fearing the cacophonous noise
My heart beats to the constant pulse of the clock
When will it explode with sound?
Tick, tick, tock, tock, tick-tock

My heart beats to the pulse of the clock
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
Tick, tick, tock, tock, tick-tock
Soon, now…soon, now…

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…
The clock is ticking
Soon, now…soon, now…
When will it go off?
