Tick Tock

(No, this isn’t a Ke$ha song.)

Tick Tock

Tick tock
Tick tock

Seconds race around the clock
But minutes drag on by
Yet in an hour things change so much
In a day the world’s brand new
A week can be like
A month or
A million years

Tick tock
Tick tock

We dance to the beat of seconds
Step in time with the minutes
Spend an hour laughing
Revel in a day full of fun
Because who’s to say the week will be full of the same
Or that the month will remain unchanged
That next year we’ll all be here

Tick tock
Tick tock

Death can happen in a second
Laughing can change to tears in a minute
An hour can bring enough pain to topple you
A day can stab you more than once
Weeks can be trenches of endless despair
Months can be pits
A year can spell your end

Tick tock
Tick tock

So what will you do with your seconds?
Your minutes?
Your hours?
Your days?
Your weeks?
Your months?
Your years?
