tick tick tick tick minute
12:49 am / 18.02.06

wallstreet tickers outside of my head
they buzz almost
all the noise for minutes passing
all that noise for nothing

there goes love
like a flying balloon
out into the night
here i stay uncomfortably numb
a wish for to shave all my numbness away

tick tick tick
buzz buzz
up and down
i can't keep a thought longer than a tick
a tick on the clock
on the cd player

one minute waltzes by
and I am weak
they dance by
and jeer at me
laugh at me
cut me

good bye love
the closest knowing I know I'll know.

somehow I thought the future would just happen.
I wouldn't have to plan it out.
boy, oh boy
life is proving me wrong.
minute by
ticking moment.
