Lyrics

The clock and it's ticking
Always begging for more
The dog in the kitchen
Asleep on the floor
It does nothing
For my state of mind

The waterpipe dripping
The same as before
Dreams always slipping
Down chains for the poor
It does nothing
For my state of mind

The candy car ringing
You lose if you miss
The joy in its wrapper or
The love in its kiss
Leaves you nothing
To chase down the time

The candy car ringing
You lose or you pay
For the sweet taste of heaven
To be taken away
Into nothing
But thanks for the time

Well life keeps on cheating
There's thieves in the store
My doubts keep on beating
Me out the front door
Leaving nothing
But my state of mind
