How Long

I can hear the tick of a clock to close to my head.
It's giving me a headache to think of how...
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...
Well I wish I were a super hero like the X-men, in the comics.
'Cause maybe then I could have withstood the blast
Hey, but I shattered like an ordinary sheet of glass
And there isn't enough super-glue in the world...

*Chorus*:
How long
How long
How long 'till I feel whole again?
How long
How long
How long 'till I feel whole again?

Well, I wish I were just like the T-1000 in "Terminator 2"
'Cause he could melt back together again
Even after Schwartzeneger blew him to bits
Yeah he was mean but he knew exactly who he was was

Oh, and incidently,
So did that guy, Kaiser Soze, in "Usual Suspects"
But he had to blow his whole familty away.

*chorus*

I wish I could lie
I wish I didn't care
I wish I could lie just like that guy
(repeat 4X!)

I can hear the tick of that clock, still close to my head
Well maybe if I couldn't hear the seconds pass
I wouldn't have to ask
Ooooohhh...

*Chorus*
(repeats 'till finish)
