"Live like you will only live once, party like there's no tomorrow, die leaving you know you gave all you got."


Tick
Tock
The minute hand
Counting down hours
Ticking as I talk
And tocking as I walk
Moving slow
But fast
Never holding back
Time doesn’t cease
“Stop!” I cry
It doesn’t listen “Stop it!”
I’m hurrying
I can’t go faster
I run
Sprint
I’m hauling it
I must hurry
I need time
The clock
It won’t stop
I’m heading for the door
It’s closing
I need out
I must go on
I can’t make it
I stumble
My own feet gave out
I’m lying on the ground
The door clicks shut
I hear the echoes decease
I’m lying there
I’m done
I’m dead
I didn’t make it
I’m in the dark
And all I hear is
The clock
It ticks as I cry
And tocks as I die
It’s the clock of life
And mine has finished
