lyrics

Lost in self reflection
Consumed by introspection
Over these indiscretions
That we did not commit

The boulevard is blurry
And we are in such a hurry
To not be judged by this jury
Of persons far from peers

Our collective unconscious is bleeding in time
To the sound of our heartstrings' new lullaby

Tick tock, we can't stop moving
Face to face with the firing squad
No rest now for the weary
While the wicked ones applaud
Take heed to shield your faces
For judgment day is near
We can handle any hardship
If we can make it through this year

The winter hibernation
Brought spring and condemnation
Then summer's hesitation
Now we all look too the fall

There's a light in the darkness that struggling to shine
There's some remnant of hope in this hurt soul of mine

Tick tock, we can't stop moving
Face to face with the firing squad
No rest now for the weary
While the wicked ones applaud
Take heed to shield your faces
For judgment day is near
We can handle any hardship
If we can make it through this year

Our collective unconscious is bleeding in time
To the sound of our heartstrings' new lullaby

Tick tock, we can't stop moving
Face to face with the firing squad
No rest now for the weary
While the wicked ones applaud
Take heed to shield your faces
For judgment day is near
We can handle any hardship
If we can make it through this year
