    45 Minutes to Midnight

    One goes another one comes
    We rile up in defense positions
    We cluster in pity parties
    Forgetting our personalities
    A butterfly thinks its self a bird

    Midnight is 45 minutes away
    See as the time passes
    See as the hours die out

    I hear the sound of the tickling clock
    "tik tok tik tok"

    Now we're good to go
    Old age comes slow
    But lunacy takes you unaware
