Forgive me for saying this now
But I have to go out there
Can't stay here
Can't be anywhere
Can't be
Don't know how to feel
Don't know what I want
Don't want
Just know it's not this
Run little boy
Run far
Run fast
Life is right behind you
See the stirs
See it whirl
It will catch you soon
And then you will have to watch it whirl around you
See the brass ring?
Catch it
Got the slimey one again?
Wipe your hand on your shirt and run again.
I can't go
Not there
Not out there where they are
Not where he is
Not where he laughs
I can't go
Don't make me go

BUt, of course you can
Like you always have
You will stand up
You will gather your things
You will go out the door
You will do what you must do
And you will look good doing it
And you will do it well
And you will smile
And laugh
And be good natured

And run back home and hide in the darkened corner
Hide, little boy
He's coming again
Hide your head
Hide your body
Someone help me
Someone rescue me
Where are you?
I know you're there
I know you could help me
I know you could love me
Stop him
Someone stop him

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.
