about

*You dust off an inscription attached to an empty pedestal*

It reads:

Clocktown
An Apocalyptic Lucid Dream
A Pit of Me, inside my Skuukum House
A distant parallel Jack FU is the Hero of Time
The villain is the force that makes it feel real

Track Name: 72 Hours Remain
I die in all my dreams
so it seems I got a lot on my mind
I watch my friends do important thing
and I wish that I had the time
I bought a dictionary
so I could write down more words
But the words starting flowing off the pages
and I just starting getting lazy

I hide my fear in metaphor
Cause I wish I had more things to say
I try to be artistic by being ambiguousistic
But there not continuousistic thoughts in here!
I just wish I had a pretty girl who could
tell me everything I made was
nearly as perfect as it seems in my dreams
but it'll never be as it seems 'cause it's in my dreams!

I think it's funny, that we're laughing
My nose is running out of time
My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park
My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park

There's one thing I forgot to mention
I call it my mind
It helps me important things like calculating the time
I've spent wasting, I spent talking all about this same old shit
Well my mind is bottle and hey guess what?
I'm about to open it

My legs are starting to feel heavy
My nose is running out of time
My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park
My mother is crying, 'cause we're in the park

Know me for I can never edie
Find me deep inside your mind
Cut me off
Rewind me
I'd like to see you try
I'd like to see you try
I'd like to see you try

Touch me with your shriveled hands
Taste me and tell me what you think
Hold me
Destroy me
I wonder if you can?
I wonder if you can?
I wonder if you can?

What is this place?
What is this place
The is no reason here
Am I to waste this lonely pace
On the unfortunate fate that I fear

Now off you go
Now off you go
To find the friend you've lost
I see the breast and eyes the same
Consult adults after they've crossed
Track Name: 60 Hours Remain
Walk into a lobby of strange scenery
A bunch of guest who all recognize me
And at the front desk, guess who I see
It's a girl I've only whispered about
And she looking at me but she's staring much too long
And she says

Don’t you think that it’s strange you found me here
And don’t you blink otherwise I’ll disappear
Go to sleep if you want to see me again…
Stay in bed, you’ve already traveled far
And we’ll pretend, we’re dining on a shooting star
And now my friend, promise me you’ll see me again…

Somethings not right
Was it something I said?
‘Cause what I said was in my head.
Don’t you think, that’s it’s kind of crazy
That’d I’d appear just a little hazy and
Don’t you want a reason just to see me again?…
I’ll behave however that you want me to
If you take way the pain of the impending doom
Because everything feels like it’s falling apart…

Somethings not okay
Meaning I can’t convey
When there’s a delay on what I say

Don’t you think that it’s strange you found me here
And don’t you blink otherwise I’ll disappear
Go to sleep if you want to see me again…
Track Name: 52 Prosopagnosia
I'm having trouble seeing faces
I'm having trouble seeing my own
I'm having trouble going places
I'm having trouble being left alone
I'm having trouble seeing people
Knowing there all going to die

And I've tried
Oh how I've tried
Lord knows I've tried

*you are lifted into the air, gasping with frustration*
Track Name: 48 Dejadawn
Wait!
I don't really wanna go
But I don't want to stay but
I feel that everything
is coming much
more than
before
It's gotta be a dream
and if it's not I try to wake up before the quaking destruction of this scene
Now I wish
I didn't I have to go
But I don't want to stay and that's okay
No, no, no, no, no, no
It couldn't be that way
No it couldn't be that way
Because I've seen is all before
Visceral knocking on my door
And after all the alcohol is being shot into my into my brain
and it feels all the same
And I know that I've got to go

And I say it one more time

And even though I know its a dream I find the impeding death
And I can't wake up and I just dick around for a couple hours
Until sunlight and I continue on to the next day
And I just pray the third day comes soon
And as the more I stay asleep the less if feels real when I wake up
Track Name: 36 Hours Remain
I can't hear you
Let's go

What's the point in helping all these people
If they're all just in my head
What's the point in helping all these people
If there all just gonna die
What's the point?

What's the point in helping all these strangers
If they're all just in my head
They're all just in my head!
What's the point in helping all these people
If they're all just gonna die

What kind of strangers are these people?
Do they think of you as friend?
What is the right thing?
Does it make you happy?
What is your true face?

Not yet

What's the point in helping all these strangers?
If they're all just in my head
in my head
in my head
in my head
Track Name: 24 Hours Remain
I got this Dad
He is getting old
I'll get his wrinkles when he loses his

And I know
It doesn't feel real
It never really has
And I guess it never will

Sometimes I wish I could go back and live life as if it were a game
Sometimes I wish it wasn't so hard to change
to change
to change
to change

And it goes on and on on and on...
And it goes on and on on and on...
And it goes on and on on and on...

To change, yeah?
To change, yeah!
To change
Track Name: 12 Hours Remain
Please don't go yet
We finally just met
Your voice like a lullaby

Please talk but don't sing
Soon my alarm will ring
And I'll awake in my head

And that's when everything feels peaceful
But it doesn't last
It doesn't last
Doesn't last the same
the same
the sound

*Boss battle ensues*
Track Name: 0 Hours Remain
Take a look at me
Tell me what you see
Do you think it's me?
Do you think it's me?
Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?

Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?
Am I stuck I stuck in a tree?
Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?
Am I stuck I stuck in a tree?

I don't know

Take a look outside
All that passes by
Do you feel alive?
I don't feel alive
Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?
Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?

Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?
Am I stuck I stuck in a tree?
Am I stuck I stuck in a dream?
Am I stuck I stuck in a tree?

I don't know
