If I Could Turn the Clocks Back

Chemicals they walk and talk
And laugh and sing and say a lot
And pretty enough they’ll never leave us alone.
Chemicals swim through my veins
And dance around in my brain
And make me feel as cold as a stone.

AndThey said take a hit with me tonight
And in the morning you’ll feel alright
Well I’m still waiting for the morning to come.

Chemicals they fill the sky
And leave us asking each other why
The sea’s not as bright as it used to be.
And maybe I’m numb or just simply dumb
But I don’t think I’m the only one
Who can’t rid myself of this disease.

Cuz oh my my, if I could turn the clocks back
Then oh I might, turn them back to yesteryear.
And oh my my, it’s scary how the sky fades to grey.

Cuz the storm outside feels like ten thousand arrows
That swallow up the light
Until the dawn breaks if tomorrow…ever comes.

Well optimistic sights, can make shooting stars appear
Whenever you’d like, unless the smoke it dims the sky,
Like a tomb stone’s light, in the misty morning.
So don’t mind if I lie
To cover up a part of my life
When I couldn’t even smile.
And oh my my, if I could turn the clocks back
Then oh I might, I might.
