Tick tick there goes my nerves.

You walk around without a care in the world

Stress free

No responsibility.

Tick tick there goes my annoyance.


Freedom of speech is no stranger to you

No consequences for not biting your tongue

Speaking louder and LOUDER, even after you have already won.

Tick tick there goes my irritation.


Does my opinion no longer matter?

I express myself you deny it,

I assert myself you uninvited it.

Tick tick there goes my aggravation.


Tick tick BOOM, three strikes you're out!

What have you done, what have you unleashed?

It isn't a monster, it isn't a beast.

It's me.
