Some say it was a warning
Some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
When it came down from the sky
The way it spoke to us
You felt it from inside

You've become a virus
That has eaten up its host
We've been watching you with all of our eyes
And what you seem to value most

Or so we used to say
Your greed, self importance, and your arrogance
You piss it all away

Or we will wipe this place clean

Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Your time is tick-tick-ticking away
Ticking away
