I feel like I'm calling on a telephone

No one can hear the ringing,

I feel like I'm running up a steep hill

No one can stop me from running,



The hourglass has no more grains of sand

My watch has stopped no more turning hands

The little hand shakes its fist

The face is hanging out on a spring.
