When we die time will stop
Giving us a single moment
To have our last thought
Cherished as we float into the dark
Compassionate after an existence
Indifference until the end
The clock caring just this once
It’s you on my mind
If not now then when
I thought of the consequences
A phantom of responsibility
Haunting we and the choices
Silver and diamond
White bright and late night
Spent dancing taking what we need
Devil in kind composure
Reminding you this won’t last
As if anything does
Monkeys full of ideas
About what’s proper or not
Just take off your dress
This is the moment
I’ll play in front of my eyes
When time greets me
