[Intro]
Watchmaker, teach me the ways
I want to learn the secrets and the sciences of seconds
Watchmaker, teach me the ways
The methods to dull my ears to the sound

[Verse 1]
Teach me how to rewind, rewind, so I can be there
Every single minute of this day
I'm always focused on the next thing
If only I could clock-hand read
Teach me how

[Hook]
If I were a watchmaker, I would build suspension into the springs
Hidden gears, secret faces
Undiscovered hours to keep you in
Hours to keep you in

[Break]
There'll be no back, there'll be no forth
Just us, where we are

[Hook 2]
Watchmaker, teach me the workings
I want to learn the secrets and sciences of seconds
Teach me the seasons, the measure of these machines

[Verse 2]
I'm haunted by mechanical sounds
Damped, stolen, and swallowed, relentless, counting down
In the bellies of old enemies
I'm plagued by the tick tock, tick tock
But with vehemence I'll take to their faces and tear them away
There's tension in me, I'm wound up and bound to an endless release
A robin imprisoned in a carved clock, I'm a tune locked in a music box
To a grave melody
I can feel a nervousness in my fingers
To spindles, they're wasting away
And with every twitch, they're turning
Passing by with my meaningless revolutions

[Hook 2]

[Verse 3]
I gazed too deep, I leaned in too close
Caught by the collar and dragged into a two-four waltz
Drawn into steps unfamiliar to me
I was passed like partners between turning teeth

[Hook 2]

[Hook]

[Hook 2]
