If you're familiar with the phrase "hurry up and wait," you'll understand the many moods of Watching the Clock. Though time remains constant, our perceptions of it change in speed. A brief and calming intro is quickly contrasted by a hurried, relentlessly "ticking" rhythm, and a slowly moving theme superimposed over it. Interrupted by brief moments of building frustration, as if the hands of the clock are moving too slowly, the paced rhythms continue. A slow interlude could be a sign of surrender to nature's time superiority, or it could simply be the lunch break in a busy work day when "it's okay" if time seems to pass more slowly. The relentless pace resumes and builds, until a final ritardando ends this busy day.
