ALL'S HELL THAT ENDS WELL:


Tick tock, tick tock
the shadows form around me
Tick tock, tick tock
I'm frozen as you hold me
Tick tock, tick tock
the blood pours down my arms
Tick tock, tick tock
a halo around your head is forming.

Boom, click, boom, click
the skulls are quickly nearing
Boom, click, boom, click
my heart is frantically pacing

Screaming once, screaming twice
the whispers are drawing near
Screaming once, screaming twice
I'm trapped; no one can save me

Tick, tock, tick tock
Tick, tock, tick tock
Tick-

Breathe, sob, breathe, sob
Awake you find the morning
Calm, think, calm, think
You're alive and I'm not mourning
But-

Boom, click, boom click
the shadows form again
Boom, click, boom click
the horses come stampeding forward
Crash, boom, boom, crash
the tears are falling swiftly
Black, white, black, white
the blood is drifting slowly
One, two, three, four
a flower floats nearby me
Five, six, seven, eight
It's time for me to die.

Tick, tock, tick tock
the old clock clicks along
Ding, dong, boom, click
the dream is never ending.
Tick, tock, tick, tock
this is the price I pay
Boom, click, tick tock
The nightmare begins again.
