lyrics

The train carried me
Past the boundary of the north
And all my friends stood
In the south
In the east
In the west
And waved goodbye

Each station we passed
Was another thing lost
Each little thing weakening
Worsening
Diminishing
Growing out in chains
Locks and keys
Reaching in
To capture me


I endure entrapment
So we can be free
So we can be free
I close the box
And you change the locks
So we can be free
So we can be free


The van carried me
To an all too empty room
An empty bed and basin
To the left
To the right
Above my head
Nothing but nothing

Each item we touched
Was another thing lost
Each fingertip tightening
Constricting
And smothering
Breathing through my throat
Gags and mutes
Twisting round
To capture me


I endure entrapment
So we can be free
So we can be free
I close the box
And you change the locks
So we can be free
So we can be free

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me, let me out


The plane took me
Past absent space
Where absent clouds
Cut absent place
All around me
In the seat
At my feet
And in my eyes
Absence of everything

So I tried not to think
What would happen next
Then you said,
Freedom is a trick
Liberty is nothing more
Than a pretty word and
The end can never end
If the start never began

The end can never end
If the start never began

And that is how I’ll keep you close
