The clock’s ticking, I just count the hours

from Kanye West (Ft. Dwele) – Power Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s going to die one day, but he’s living life now.

It’s often said that a subordinates watch shows seconds and minutes, but a boss’s watch only shows hours. That’s because the subordinate or little guy is ruled by time. He has to worry about where he is at what time. He cant be late for this or that. The boss however is on his own time, he’s on his own schedule, he has a watch with only hour hands.
