"Clockwork (Retail)" as written by Christopher Hughes, Christopher Johnson, Phillip Robinson, Robert Kucharek and Greig Nori....
You're probably sick of being tired
You can't find the strength to close your eyes
You can't let go,
But you can't change everything
Stop laying in this burning bed

Write it on the walls and read it
Bright red so you can see it
Don't fail me now
Write it on the walls and read it
Until there are no secrets
So safe and sound
At least for now

Time's gonna warn you with a whisper
What it wants to let you know
You can't live in fear of the things that aren't for sure
So stay alive by playing dead

Write it on the walls and read it
Bright red so you can see it
Don't fail me now
Write it on the walls and read it
Until there are no secrets
So safe and sound

Still there are lines for us to write before we close our eyes
And only time will tell the ending when the ink runs dry
Time will tell everything,
It's ever so quiet counting down

Write it on the walls and read it
Blood red so you can see it
Life leaking out
Write it on the walls and read it
Until there are no secrets
So safe and sound
At least for now
At least for now

    General CommentThis song means...hmmm...it means to wake up and be alert to those around you, trust your friends, And expect the best in life. "write it on the walls" means make your history so others will see what you have done..."time warns you with a whisper" means that you must keep up with your life story. "Until there are no secrets
    So safe and sound" still every detail about life in your journal/auto biography. "bright red so you can read it" write with blood and soul, do not let go of your meaning of life until you die...that is what it means to me.
