Half past the stroke of midnight
I feel the urge coming on,
to stroke another chime at one
or shall I stay quit till the break of dawn.

Tick tock says my mind
and another will soon pass,
just like the sands of time
slipping through an hour glass.

The pain in keeping quiet
is more than i can bear;
so screams of ecstasy each hour
over and over will fill the air.
