The raw truth of life that defining moment
A simple time with seconds to spare
Those seconds last for less than we hoped
It is out of our hand at that moment

The recollection of life is a gamble
It is a roll of the dice
Our life and those seconds unclear
The belief that we never ramble

Awaiting that second that we fall
The disappearance into the light
The emergence from the dark
The moments we stand tall

Our second-hand hangs in the balance
Stolen moments will not suffice
It’s clear we’re lost in the moment
With seconds to spare
