Who Watches the Watchmen?
Like Let it Be,
Carry on, my Wayward Son,
Suicide is Painless,
And many other songs with beautiful lyrics,
But I want to find something that calls out to all of us,
While still retaining originality,
And that's where my problem lies.
No one watches the Watchmen,
We watch ourselves and we watch you,
And no one cares.
No one cares to hear the sounds of the puddles splashing upwards after a thunderstorm,
No one cares to watch the sun rise after a long walk filled with regret,
No one cares to say the simple words of "I Love You" to the one they love until it's too late,
No one cares to give a meaningful apology when they've wasted someone's time,
And no one gives back that time to someone who really needs it.
The clock is ticking,
The seconds melt into months,
Love is eternal,
But time is forever.
And time doesn't care.
But the Watchmen do.
I wasn't exactly sure how to phrase the line you quoted, I've judged "forever" and "eternal" as the same, but upon looking it up, I saw someone's definition where "forever" is within time and "eternal" is outside the boundaries of time, so I suppose it works.
If you haven't read the Graphic Novel Watchmen, I suggest you do one day, that's mostly where I got my inspiration.
