  I know what it is to be new and bright
Shinning amongst the tinged and dull
A light in the valley of conversation
A shadow cast strong behind old folks

I know what it is to live in the annex
Silent thoughts louder than traffic
A siren blaring every now and then
Your prayers being heard go unread

Prisoners walking atop a cageless globe
You see I am dulling, worn from gloat
Our conversations turn to arguments
Now lie, my brother, lie as we lament
