Upwards and onwards

Nearly home free

And another day gone

along a moveable feast

Hold on to that beast

Where has the week gone?

Littering my mind

Can't find any time

Done

Can we move along?

I feel a little sick

Fading away

Done

I will never be won.

Tick

Someone stop the clock

Lost pieces of me

Laps down the rat run

Back against a wall

Done

Done

Looks down the barrel of a gun
