Listen here boy, time is running out

Because the clocks
Tick your time away
So discouraging to feel dying
Creep in… into your bones
It doesn’t seem fair
How this world can leave you so bare
Because it’s here for just a moment
And then it’s gone…gone away
Deal me my cards
You’ve shuffled the deck
I’ll ante my chip, it’s time
No bluffing here you see
I’m placing my bet
I’m going all in
1, 2, 3 of a kind
Luck that may seem blind
My chances good its understood
(there are) times in life we must roll the dice
