Clock

from Urban Folk Songs

Everything there is to say has been said
Into the ears of the working dead
Their minds have already been fed
Though the light's already been shed
Yes, the light's already been shed.

(Chorus)
Oooo, whoa, say the light's gonna stop real soon
Oooo, whoa, they can hear but they can't sing the tune
They can hear but they can't sing the tune.

Control is computer fed
Oh, spat out, burned and shred
Responsibility's so thinly spread
Floats like a cloud over everyone's head
Floats like a cloud over everyone's head

(Repeat Chorus)

We fear them grizzly red
And they're comin' overhead
We embrace all those who have fled
As we wait out death and the dread
As we wait out death and the dread

(Repeat Chorus)

Everything there is to say has been said
Into the ears of the working dead
Although the light's already been shed
Peace is all but dead; peace is all but dead

(Repeat Chorus)
