CLOCKWORK

You pushed us all away
The sun lives upon the shelf
We missed the signals across the sea
And no one smiled

There is a place for all these all things
Yet not a place for us
One last look at the pictures and say goodbye

Where are we
We all lost that feeling and now are we lost
Day after day it seems we watched the train roll with empty seats

Year after year
Of working for no one with nothing to show
Its waiting
But can you reach islands in selfish tides

Tiny red growing capillaries
Web across stone chiselled eyes
These are the marks of all your years
The sum of all our lives

The door was never opened
The windows were always closed
No one will hear a sound tonight
No one will breathe a sigh
