Tick Tick Tick

the time is winding down

10 9 8 7 6...

The countdown is almost done

I sit and stare at pictures from my past

i ask myself, "Where has time gone?"

i always hear "live for tomorrow and not today's satisfactions"

so that’s what I’m doing

but I’m drowning as i do it

the time is near

and the time lost

I’m slipping away into a black hole

no one to save me because they are all gone

I’m always told I’m a burden

i need to grow up

i need face the music

I’m always told that the "man" controls everything

he tells me what to do

what to watch

what to learn

and what to say

but why can't i have it my way?

Why can’t i break free?

I just want to escape the misery and live my life

just me and my love

together forever

i think it can only happen if i break free this spell

if i leave this crazy place

all i got to do is just say bye…
