TIC TOC – SPIKE CARR

Tik Tok


The ticking of the clock.
It swarms my head,
Tik, Tok
surrounds my mind.
It’s so angering.
Tik, Tok
So hyper aware
of this annoying tik.
With every tok i feel my eye twitch.
Tik, Tok

In this place they say
R E L A X,
Tik, Tok
It’ll be alright.
Tik, Tok
But with these harsh white walls,
the hyperactive clicking from the secretary’s pen,
Tik, Tok
this annoying ticking of the clock,
the chittering of the chains at my wrists.
Tik, Tok

In such an empty place
with no busy bodies nor gentle music,
Tik, Tok
there’s nothing to bring the mind to.
So all these noises,
Tik, Tok
Click, Clack
Cling, Clang
they’re so loud.
Tik, Tok

My mind just has nowhere to go.
It’s so frustrating
Tik, Tok
I’ve been given this space to wander,
but there’s nowhere to go.
Tik, Tok
And it’s so frustrating.

Being here is such agony.
Tik, Tok
There’s the clock, again,
Tik, Tok
Tik, Tok
with it’s mocking hands,
Tik, Tok
and so many numbers!
Tik, Tok
Tik, Tok
It makes me tremble.
Tik, Tok
It makes me angry.
Tik, Tok
It feels like im going to explode.
Tik, Tok

Only am i freed by the call of my name.
But as i follow into the back,
just before the door clicks,
I hear it again.
Tik, Tok
