Clockwork Heart

on Postcard #3 - Cologne - Songs for the Breathless



out of strength, out of proportion
I fall in slow motion
straight down like a dead bird
that falls from the sky
you pushed me too high
I heard a ticking in my clockwork heart
maybe a gear jumped loose, maybe a
forcer blocked now it runs off beat and
I don‘t know when it started to stop
pounding perfectly fine
maybe I just need a replacement part
or have to wind it up and it will work
alright, but how can I tell if I don‘t know
why it started to stop pounding straightly
in time

I always thought
there could be so much more
a firework, a glowing meteor
when all you get is mediocrity
you can‘t deny
you‘ve pushed me too high
