Modern Time

Modern time - no ticking clock
No chime upon the scoured hour
Smooth and sleek, our digital survival
Red, the numbers, flashing out
Reflecting in the stainless steel
No room left for thought or doubt
Reminding us our time is running out

Falling behind just to feel you're ahead
Sleep to dream of realms in vast confusion
The earth is speaking silently
Beneath the electronic sizzling
Deep and strong, the song plays on
So few (too few) will make the time to listen

Modern time - no ticking clock
It just keeps running on
No pause, no rest, no healing
Those tender moments out of time
Are crying out to you
Whenever will you ever take
The time to listen...?
