"How Long" - POE  
I can hear the tick of the clock,
Too close to my head.
It's giving me a headache,
To think of all,
Of all the tick tocks,
I've ever heard,
Only one second counted
Now didn't it,
Once long ago.
It was like an atom bomb went off in my house,
And everybody left.
I wish I were a superhero like the X-Men in the comics,
'Cause maybe then I could've withstood the blast.
Oh but I shattered like an ordinary sheet of glass,
And there's not enough superglue in the world.

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

Oh I wish I were just like the T1000 in Terminator 2,
'Cause he could melt back together again,
Even after Schwartznegger blew him to bits.
Yeah he was mean, but he knew exactly who he was.
Oh, and incidentally, so did that guy, Kiser Soze,
In Usual Suspects, but he had to blow his whole family away.

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.
I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.
I wish I could lie,
I wish I didn't care,
I wish I could like just like that guy.

I can hear the tick of that clock,
Still close to my head
Maybe if I couldn't hear the seconds pass,
I wouldn't have to ask:

How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again
How long...how long...how long
till I feel whole again.

How long...how long...
