The Machine

Tick. Tock. Tick tick tock
Get up. Stretch. Breathe
For the clock runs, runs, runs
Stopping for none, tick tock tick

Still on the bed?
Get up! Start your day!
And don’t forget to breathe
Tick Tock. Tick tick tock

RUN! Run…Run Run Run
That’s right, breathe in
Hold. And breathe out
Tick. Tock. Tick tick tock

Wash your body, wash your ache
Open your eyes and take the bait
Have some protein, drink some shake
For the clock’s ticking tick tock tick

RUN! RUN…Run Run Run
Run for the bus, run for the day
Run for the time, it’s only getting late
Tick. Tock. Tick tick tock

Wait up, don’t run, take a breath
Sign a check, get a house, get a lake
And now YOU go set the bait.
RUN! RUN! RUN run run

Can you hear it now? The familiar
Tick. Tock. Tick tick tock
Yes. Run again. Get up once again
You know you cant be late

But IT IS getting late
And things, things are yet left to be made
Tick. Tock. Tick tick tock.

Get get up! Up, up and straight
You have got a rep to maintain
You’ve KNOW you’ve almost got it all, so

You got so much done
A house. A lake. A home that runs
Finally its done, now you can rest
No need to run, only to invest

But the clock still runs
And now you’re on you’re bed
Look at the clock,its getting ahead

Tick. Tock. Tick Tick Tock.
Take a deep breath.
And now, you rest.
