You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the car
You sat alone under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me
Well, I fell into the water and now Im free

My friends they dont really get me
Think Im the only one
Well, I sold my soul to Jesus
And since then Ive had no fun

Behind every tree is a cutting machine
And a kite fallen from grace
Inside every man is a heart of sand
You can see it in his face

Hell tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain
Hell tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain

The wind and I, we speak the same
But he dont hear so well
Youre gonna have to curse him
Well, youre gonna have to yell

The sky and I, weve had our fights
And Im coming round to rain
If the rain come round and it dont come out
Then Ill never have to speak again

I can tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain
Can tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain

The captains got his boots on
And hes heading out the door
Leaving his lady alone
Thinking he dont love me no more

Hes done with all this bullshit
Hes going back to war
If heaven is as heaven does
Then this is hell for sure

And hell tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain
Hell tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick away
Another second lost with every fallen grain

You kick the blow, now you've gotta kick the car
You sat alone under billowing sky
If I feel God judging me
But I fell into the water and now Im free
