The Ticking Of The Clock

The time has stopped
No more ticking of the clocks
We're locked in the middle of hour 5
Just relax and close your eyes
We're not going forward
Not going backwards
We're in the middle of an earthquake
And it won't stop
The only thing to end the shake
Is the ticking of the clock
And I can remember
What I've done for the past week
Now it's winter
Snow has covered all the winding streets
There's no telling
When this is ending
The chill of my bones
Frostbitten nose
We're not going forward
Not going backwards
We're in the middle of an earthquake
And it won't stop
The only thing to end the shake
Is the ticking of the clock
And walkin' down the streets
Lookin' down at my feet
Makin' it through the crowd
New York City
The city that never sleeps
Nobody has to sleep now
I turn my head to find
We're still stuck in time
And momma's always told us
Make the best of a situation
With every callous
I get from the freezin'
Cold
I wanna go
But I needa' fight
Have the strength
Deep inside
Pulsin' through my veins
We're not ging forward
Not going backwards
We're in the middle of an earthquake
And it won't stop
The only thing to end the shake
Is the ticking of the clock
Earthquake
Won't stop
End shake
By ticking clocks
And I push on
I push on through everything
And I push on
I push on through all the pain
And the time isn't stuck
We're still going forward
Not going backwards
We've reached the end of an earthquake
It has stopped
And now the thing that ended the shake
Was the ticking of the clock
The ticking of the clock
