The bells doth toll a thirteenth time,
The world falls in to a state of crime,
All have gone crazy, no one can explain,
Where ever you turn, seems someone is slain,
The bells toll again, once an hour is done,
You realize just now, you’re holding a gun,
What have you done? Who did you kill?
How can you begin to swallow this pill?
Such secrets, it seems, will stay with you,
As no one remembers and none have a clue.
