Three tower blocks glinting in the midday sun.
Two ice cubes melting in a glass of white rum.
Head for the places that I've never gone.

(I can't get through to myself.
Just can't get through to myself.)

Eight beggers choking on a slice of red pie.
Two rivers freezing in a broken goodbye.
No hesitation, just a kick in the eye.

(I can't get through to myself.
Just can't get through to myself.)

And we do a lot of learning
everyday or so it seems
but the road it keeps turning
and i'm right back here again.

Blue leather jacket and a helium voice.

(I can't get through to myself.)

My head is reeling from too much choice.

(I can't get through to myself.
I can't get through to myself.
Just can't get through to myself...etc)

    General CommentThis track is hidden on the White Ladder album, at the start of the CD.
    Play the first track, and then search backwards beyond the start of the track, and you will begin to hear the end of Can't Get Through. Continue searching to the start and then release to play the song in full. I don't think it can be played on a computer, only ordinary CD players.
