Studying the metronome
Keeping a pace with every beat
Wondering how much time
How much time until your defeat
Tick, tock

The second hand, it moves so slowly
You can really hear it if you listen closely
Between each tiny strike
You feel that little bit of nostalgia
It eats you alive
Between each tiny strike
Tick, tock

As you cross off the days
For every month of every year
The x’s you create
Provoke enough frustration to devastate

So be careful
It’s almost over, this time we waste

Tick tock
Tick tock
Tick tock
