Vicious Circle


PLAY - BUY -



Tommy from Illinois
Beautiful little boy
Born to Mary who's only sixteen
The father's gone because
He can't handle the
Thought of having a son

So Mary's all alone
She's working nine to five
Just to keep her and her son alive
And her parents can't
Bring themselves to see
A daughter who's disgraced their family

Hear it going tic toc tic toc
Listen to the sound it's going
Tic toc tic toc
Time is running out for him
Tic toc tic toc
Living in a vicious circle
Tic toc tic toc yeah

Now Tommy's growin' up
But he lacks the love
'Cause his mammas never home
And he never sees
His mom's family
It seems their stranded all alone

All his pain inside
Turns to anger and no one
Ever ever reads the signs
He takes his shot at love
But it never works
He doesn't know what love's supposed to be

Hear it going tic toc tic toc
Listen to the sound it's going
Tic toc tic toc
Time is running out for him
Tic toc tic toc
Living in a vicious circle
Tic toc tic toc yeah

Now things are getting bad
Tommy's joined a gang
He's finally found his family
Him and his brothers do
What they gotta do
Just to make ends meat

Until that ugly day
When Tommy's brother turns
And blasts Tommy away
Tommy didn't know
That his girl's at home
With a baby on the way

Hear it going tic toc tic toc
Listen to the sound it's going
Tic toc tic toc
Time is running out for him
Tic toc tic toc
Living in a vicious circle
Tic toc tic toc yeah

Hear it going tic toc tic toc
Listen to the sound it's going
Tic toc tic toc
Time is running out for him
Tic toc tic toc
Living in a vicious circle
Tic toc tic toc yeah
