On a string, balancing. Oh dear, what will they think of me? Quickly the truth becomes clear. No one cares, no one even noticed that you're so far away from them. 

The wind is howling fiercely. Lord Death seems set against me. Precious few things certain as he. 

One more day on the wire, riding this nightmare. Life is the darkest dream of them all.

All the trees are dancing gaily. This storm is passing right over me. If I'm to fall, then fall I will.
