The Sinister Walk

I started this on Saturday night while daisy_knotwise was putting Katie to bed and finished it up tonight. It seems to have an appropriate rhythm. Tick, tock.

The Sinister Walk

Time waits for no man,
No man but me.
Take hold of my hand
And you will see

(Chorus)
We’re going on the sinister walk,
Moving ‘tween the ticks of the clock,
Taking everything and we’re beating the odds
As we’re strolling round the planet like gods.

Walk down the sidewalk,
Weave through the crowd.
From tick until tock,
Time’s disallowed.

I am the master
Of time and space.
I’m moving faster.
I’ll win the race.

(Chorus)

If I should want it,
It will be mine.
No need to flaunt it
And I’ll be fine.

Leave them not knowing
That I exist.
When the breeze is blowing
I’ve vanished in the mist.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
It’s cold and it’s lonely
Outside the bounds of time.
This one time only,
I’m asking you to cross the line.

(Chorus)

Time waits for no man,
No man but me.
Take hold of my hand
And you will see.

(Chorus twice)

And we’re going on the sinister walk.
