Tick
The sound goes on

Tick
Tick
Tick
The room feels lukewarm

Tick
Tick
Tick
The clock sings his song

Tick
Tick
Tick
There’s a draft in the room

Tick
Tick
Tick
The clock won’t stop

Tick
Tick
Tick
The room feels cold

Tick
Tick
Tick
The clock goes on and on and on!

Tick
Tick
Tick
The blood is frozen in my veins

Tick
Tick
Tock
Then the clock stopped
