Tick tock, Tick tock

Tick tock, tick tock, packs of metal animals go hunting night and day.

Tick tock, tick tock, humans march forwards blinded by an invisible light.

Tick tock, tick tock, time enslaves by synchronising heartbeats as one.

Tick tock, tick tock, everything has a price and anything can be bought.

Tick tock, tick tock, another tree and animal dies leaving Earth forever.

Tick tock, tick tock, sirens are ringing but deafened by television sets.

Tick tock, tick tock, concrete jungles become cages with invisible bars.

Tick tock, tick tock, it is no longer survival of the fittest but the richest.

Tick tock, tick tock, the final alarm bells are ringing to try wake them up.

Tick tock, tick tock…
