The Seconds Go By…

…Drip Drop, Tick Tock,

The rains fall,

And the seconds go by…

 

They’ll judge you now, you’ve made your choice

Would you like to pray, before you go to hell?

Oh, want to know what’s that noise?

That’s the ringing of every bell.

We have wedding bells, and funeral knells,

Sounds of shattered dreams chime.

Tears of joy or tears of sorrow, who can tell?

They fall the same since olden times

 

Don’t you worry, hell isn’t so bad

Lately, we’ve got many lawyers inside

Politicians and bankers, you should be glad

Some contractors too by the Devil’s side.

 

Oh! Finished with your prayers? Hurray!

We should go now, yes that’s the way.

Whew! Another soul gone, what a busy day

Funny how in the end they all want to pray.

 

…Drip Drop, Tick Tock,

The rains fall

And the seconds go by…
