Round goes the clock
around the sun
the earth revolves
and round and round
goes the old cold world
ends where? no one knows.
do you know?
where did the past go.
the last hour
that was in power
just a moment ago.
peep into yourself
see! it has made you its abode
its burried there in your heart
you’ve become a graveyard.
There’s someone coming
just try and hold him there
it wouldn’t stay; it wouldn’t stay
try and hold him there
-pour in my glass some water-
there is a knock
why didn’t you care for a lock?
it’s sitting beside me now
and in glass has drowned.
