Ding ding ding
dong dong dong

time keeps passing, what have I, I ever done
go to work to pay the rent and then what just get by

ding ding
dong dong

bells ring time, let’s go drifting in the moonlight

strolling in the park, no cares anywhere
fragrant air, come on let’s bask in the sun, it’s so inviting
hallucinations bloom above, flutter, softly down
take my hand, we’ll step up into the sky, and off we go

slip into abyss of melancholy, pulls you down,
a world of pain that never seems to end

ding ding
dong dong

waves of time roll through me and swirl my mind

schizophrenic, of hope, collapse too

gray skies being is all too familiar, look up
the sun is bright and is my anodyne

ding ding
dong dong

clocks bend time away from perception

ev’rywhere we look shadows bend the light
darkness shines mutations creasing the sky in origami
a new reality unfolds in ways new to humankind
triangles change into spirals, embrace each hue

time keeps passing what do I, I really care
make my peace to be in each, each moment all so clear

ding ding
dong dong

ding ding
time goes

dong dong
