The Timers

The Timers

Tick tock

out of luck


from words to skin

I am what I am

and I'm as breakable as you

Tick tock

out of love


from eyes to thoughts

I sing what you sing

and its a broken record

Tick tock

out of gravity


from me to you

I see what you see

stars without oxygen

Tick tock

out of sin


from left to right

I taste what you taste

time is no longer here

Tick tock

out of lies


from words to beats

you are who you are

depths of my young tongue

Tick tock

out of tears


from lighters to matches

we are who we are

trails to never follow
