When your mind is numb with the silent life
You will stand and wait forever
Reach out your hand
They will not turn round while you stand so still
Stretch out your arm
Feel its freedom, its power
As the weakness grows you slide down the bank
Sinking below the cold black water
You may look up, but why?
Take! Feel the warmth.
When the fire dies and the fever breaks
Will she be there?
Bite out the poison, run! Fight! Hide!
Crawl to the sun
When the answer comes.
