It is the dead of night

And I’m dead tired

My time goes by slow

As I watch over the city


All of a sudden my heart rate increases

The sound of the black box is what speaks

It is my turn

My turn to respond


To what?

We know the signal

But what lies ahead?

Bobby is first

His voice is high pitched

This damn car won’t go any faster

Get out of my way

One of your guardians is in trouble


Is it his time?

Will he go?

His kids are beautiful

His wife is wonderful


It was my turn

What will I say to them?

It was my turn

How will I say it to them?

It was my turn

How will they react?

It was my turn
