Grandfather Clock

Tick tock tick tock goes your clock
time passses and passes my time
tick tock, tick tock goes my life time
Quarter hour you sing a song
Every quarter you sing away the time
Chimes and ding dong on the hour
My power is fading with the sun set
Sing me a lullabye all the night long
Nightmares of phantoms stealing my life
Singing a lullabye while tightening my noose.
