ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.

time has stopped, my world is dead
and my colors have long faded
my will is gone, my body is weak
and my eyes are sore and bloody

ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.

the nights are long, and dawn is short
and day is just too busy
and when evening turns to sunset
i close my eyes so i can see

ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.

never waking, or never sleeping
which comes first, i wonder?
if time existed, i'd buy it all
just to find the answer

ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.

my heart beats once, then stops forever
and ever so slowly, i slip away
whispered confessions, with no one to hear
then my one last breath consumes me

beep. . . . . . .

emergency vehicles, flashing lights
for some just another day at work
never living, or dying young
they wonder which is worse

beep. . . . . . .

clear! brrssst. clear! brrssst.
my lifeless body jolts awake
my heart beats once, then again
it won't have to stop again

ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.

living to die, then dying to live
it won't make sense to some
but i lived to die, and then died to live
and saved my heart as proof.

ba-bump. ba-bump. ba-bump.
