In the darkness, no one stops to say, hello, hello, how you going?
Strangers gesture at big screens, hooray for the cripple, hooray for the human microscope
Now are we only carving sheep? Taking vitamins?
Out to lunch with the in-laws,
Licking stamps, getting headaches
At the bottom of the sea, abstinence needs quiet company,
Is that the tight dress that you wore, now all in pieces on the floor?
Come on, let's get to the bottom of it
In the darkness, we just seem to slip away
In the darkness, sweeping sounds precede the wind humming in and out of children yelping
And now that the son is home and tags along with all the others
Do they need him around, do they want him around anymore?
Are we only milking beef? Now that the window is open, letting violins in, weeping beyond sunken buildings
(Slow down, too slow)
