The struggles of modern life come to a premature end

As the noose of loneliness tightens around my needy heart

And prior to the intricate bone network in my neck giving way

I am blowing out candles and fearing school

I feel my mothers love and laugh again with my Father

There's space under my feet, my skull never felt so heavy

Soon the final squeeze will invite a doorway to darkness

A strange time to think about car repayments

But my thoughts are random

I would be lying to say I do not have feelings of regret

Maybe the rope will snap and expose my lazy knot

Maybe I am void of feelings, I question regret

Is it not an emotional purchase of tomorrow over looked today

I catch my swaying shadow

It reminds me of a loony tune moment

My self built gallows laughs with me

But I note a sober tear which travels my cold cheek

I can make out the big hand on a distant clock

Roughly translated it tells me its time to leave

The shadow sways no more
