Tick Tock

Tick tock goes the clock

 

As we further attempt to realize our limited existence paired with the endless possibilities in life.

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

As we rush to find our soul mates in a dichotomous world that views love through a coating of social standings

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

As we try to live  in a world that encourages the fall of the people to provide stratification for people to stand

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

As we try to live virtuously or fill it with debauchery

 

Tick tock goes the clock.

 

A society where guilt is. a more powerful motivator

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

Compassion is a disparger of the sucessfully ambitious


Tick tock goes the clock

 

A world where one struggles to be ambitiously succesful 

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

The same world  world where fate condemmns the best of men to be succefully ambitious 

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

In a world where every breath is dictated to us

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

Where the status quo s the law

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

Where we desprately go Against the grain trying to  etch our names in stones that will live outlive us

 

Tick tock goes the clock

 

To all the future Alfred Hitchcock s or leaders like John Hancocks. 

 

Tick tock goes the clock
 

Will your end be taught or will you be mocked


Tick tock goes the clock

 

Go on and make something 

 

Tick tock 

 

Standing idly by to be guiltless does nothing but make the clock louder

 

Tick tock 

 

Where the value of success outweighs that of deceny

 

Tick tock

 

Where being virteous seems like a pariahic moral victory

 

Tick tock

 

A world orchestrated for winners to lose and losers to die


Tick tock


Amid all this death, there is a last meristem

 

Tick tock

 

It has been proven that the system is beatable 

 

Tick tock

 

Don't you hear it? The clockmaker buit something that outlived her 

 

 

Tick tock goes the clock
