With a breath, I alight,
Vowing never to return to that height,
Nor those ghosts in the park
(All those dim reflections hiding in the dark).

Oh how I lost control!
How it took it's toll!
How I dug a hole and jumped in, arms akimbo!
Is it limbo?

Could you please take the wheel?
'Cause I'm struggling to determine what's real,
And the air is like cream -
All alone, it's like I'm drowning in a stream…

I saw my life unfold,
I felt the dread take hold,
I heard each word that was told to me -
Could you just listen?
Will you listen?

[Oh how I wish I could be there,
Happy to breathe in the free air,
Reading the signs - what do we care about all that?

Stay with me, don't be afraid.
Think of the progress you've made.
Everything's fine, you're okay.
Just keep breathing...]

I met death yesterday,
But I didn't have a clue what to say.
Chain reactions of shame:
Oh my God, they must've thought I'd gone insane!

The tea is overboard.
Florestan's been floored.
There is no accord where there is no good reason.
There's no reason…
