"Clockwork Toy" as written by Paul Rafferty, Alasdair Walker Smith and Matthew Cameron Smith....
A clockwork toy
A broken boy
Goes through the flaming hoop
A trapeze artist
Suspended in the air

And they're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let the clock start turning in earnest
They're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let clockwork toys fulfill their potential

An elephant
Will move his trunk
If you'd only wind him up
For his audience
Who can't get up to it
Oh no no

Well, now they're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let the clock start turning in earnest
They're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let clockwork toys fulfill their potential

How many years
Will cure, cure the fears
Of the frozen worker?

And they're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let the clock start turning in earnest
They're going, they're leaving, they're getting up slowly
Let clockwork toys fulfill their potential

This drummer boy plays with rattlin' teeth
The carousel spins for its tiny kids
A ballet dancer entertains a clown
And the stilt walker who won't sit down
With the other clockwork toys
