It creeps, unnoticed

Taking

Stealing

Passing before our eyes

Infiltrating purpose

Ambushing ambition

Tick, Tick, Tick

It winds the world

Turns night to day

A burglar without conviction

In the Dock to never stand

Tock, Tock, Tock

The Faceless Bandit

Shadowless Villain

Has slain yesterday

Will defeat tomorrow

Taking from us

What is now

What is us

A shifting constant

It doesn't hide

Has no conscience

Everything applies

This ageless Anti - Hero

Time, is his name

Will take what we hold sacred

No Justice for his Crimes
