See-saw, sing-song, dead inside
Grey where fires used to hide
Wells are blocked as fountains died
No words left inside my mind.

Drip-drop, ding-dong, empty bed
Worlds all gone, their people fled
Empty streets are where I tread
No words left inside my head.

Flip-flop, tick-tock, here again
Empty chasms, dulled to pain
Silent rails and vanished train
No words left inside my brain

Clip-clop, tip-top, greasy pole
Going nowhere, moving slow
Nonsense words are all I know
See-saw, sing-song, drip-drop, ding-dong
Flip-flop, tick-tock, clip-clop, tip-top
Empty words and nothing whole
Fragments left
Silence left
No words left inside my soul.
