Cthulhu Clock Lyrics
(written and recorded by D. Bethel)
On the road to Rhode Island to put my mind at ease,
A secluded cabin hideaway beneath the ocean's breeze.
It's just a place to settle down and rest my weary head,
and I would but for a strange cuckoo clock that was mounted above my bed.
Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock
It penetrates my mind.
I hear its ceaseless chime.
Its wretched screams are endless as they
ring out through my dreams.
And until I'm driven mad...it's not as bad as it seems.
At first, my mind was singing in the perfect solitude.
Finally, alone with all my thoughts in a bright and hopeful mood.
But as weeks wore on a creeping dread fell on me with the night
Because every hour that clock would sound filled with antediluvian fright.
Though my master remains sleeping, one day he will arise,
and amid a tenebrous cavalcade I'll gladly proselytize.
What are these thoughts surrounding me? I cannot look away.
With every toll another part of me begins to painfully fade away.
Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock,
I'm clawing at my eyes.
All life I now despise.
My nerve-ends are exploding because
I cannot understand:
Am I just a speck of dust in your giant, god-like hand?
