It's almost clear that i'll find a way out of here,
but it's never the point.
Swans on a lake thought the same.

My friend from New York laughs and says,
"You'd win the prize for going from everything
to nothing at all in a matter of split seconds."

But today I'm not scared -
But today I'm not scared, and maybe that's bad,
I just noticed the clock on my wall has stopped moving,
and as much as I wish it affected my brain,
it's too much to ask 'cos I know that won't happen.

I wish someone called and woke me up,
and then in a hoarse, sheepish voice
pronounced with vigour and care,
"This was a test, just a test."
and "Soldier, you've passed.
Go back to bed, things that you've said
will always remain, like the bark on the tree,
in the bug on the wall, and in the bark on the tree."

It's almost clear that I'll find a way out of here,
but it's never the point.
Swans on a lake.
