Is it resolution?
Or black and white flying balloons?
Floating off, too colourful
Or is it separation
You put into your coats and sang
Waiting for the world to start again

Ticker tape
Ticker tape
Tick-tick-ticker tape

Is this how you're feeling?
Falling with the world tonight
Cauterized and beautiful
Slide the light
Is this how you're healing?
Out there in the paradigm
Waiting for a cavalcade to come again

Ticker tape
Ticker tape
Tick-tick-ticker tape
Ticker tape

Black light glints with colour
Sudden long and horizontal outlines the star
A sudden draft and quick chill
A single snowflake falls
And that is all
That is all
The world's bass hidden under falling wind
Waiting for the world to start again
Waiting for the world to start again
Waiting for the world to start again
Waiting for the world again

'Cause we're workin' through it
Workin' through your nightmare
Are you leaving for the precipice
Watch the worker, please
As they're working for it
Working through the night shift
And I'm workin' through it
Workin' through the nightmare
Coming back to ghosts inside
Watch the worker, please
As they're working for it
Working through the night shift
'Cause we're workin' through it
Workin' through the nightmare
Watch the worker, please
As they're working for it
Working through the night shift
Yeah they're workin' through it
Workin' through the nightmare
(And I'm hoping for a little juice)
Watch the worker, please
As they're working for it
Working through the night shift
