Mad Dog

Tick tock, tick tock,
The years have gone by
Like an eagle can fly
And I still struggle with you

Mad dog

Behind the calm exterior
A wild animal lives
And when I let it out it gives
The devil his due

Not simply a „wild side“, but out of control

You tried to destroy me
But I am not done
I rule this body
You are ruler of none
And my song will rise
While yours is gone

Dark winds, take his melody
Carry it far, far away from me

In the howling storm
I learned the meaning of love
And though the one who pulled me through is dead
She created this story within me
That I can read in the darkest times

And know it is gonna be alright

But still I hear time collapsing around me
With the sound of „tick tock, tick tock“
The one I fear is inside me

Until I die, I am your jailor
My health is your prison
Walls against the relentless clock
You will never rise again

Mad dog
