Tick Tock

version 4:
from Jak Locke / Kelcy Mae split​+​blend​+​swap (February 23rd 2006) (3:01)
Living a kaleidoscope of broken bottles of alcohol
Waiting for the time to pass runnin up against another wall
Feeling so good about a tired phase with the jaded faces laughing at me
Manacles lined on the wall just waiting for a hint of levity
Speed it up honey c'mon don't make me wait
You're just getting started it's already too late

The city sings an apathy tune that I don't even care to hear
Lounging on the highway side with a canteen full of beer
Got the devil in the back of my head and your daddy's lost his mind
Who the hell'm I gonna lean on now that the death warrant's been signed
Live live live live live it up girl so I can
Give give give give give you up girl uh huh
Break it down

I'll be truckin down the line with my bag around my neck
You'll be here and doin fine, livin life like a rubber check
Oh yeah

Livin a kaleidoscope of broken bottles of alcohol
Waiting for the time to pass, runnin up against another wall
Feelin so good about a tired phase with the jaded faces laughin at me
Manacles lined on the wall just waitin for a hint of levity

Speed it up honey, c’mon don’t make me wait
You’re just getting started, it’s already too late

The city sings an apathy tune that I don’t even care to hear
Loungin on the highway side with a canteen full of beer, uh
Got the devil in the back of my head and your daddy’s lost his mind
Who the hell’m I gonna lean on now that the death warrant’s been signed

Live live live live live it up girl so I can
Give give give give give you up girl, uh huh

I’ll be truckin down the line with my bag around my neck
You’ll be here and doin fine, livin life like a rubber check
Shhh, shhh, shhh
