It's quiet in my corner
(Back and forth)
All alone
(Back and forth)
In the dark
(Back and forth)
Cold here
(Back and forth)
In the shadows
(Back and forth)
When all the lights
(Back and forth)
Go out
(Back and forth)
Looking out beyond me
(Back and forth)
I see a picture on the wall
(Back and forth)
I've seen it a lot but long ago
(Back and forth)
But somehow it looks different now
(Back and forth)
The placard beneath it reads
(Back and forth)
'The human race'
(Back and forth)
On the canvas are people
(Back and forth)
And the faces I have seen
(Back and forth)
They want me to join them
(Back and forth)
But I don't feel so human
(Back and forth)
I don't feel like the people
(Back and forth)
Though I remember their faces
(Back and forth)
With the meaning
(Back and forth)
That they held
(Back and forth)
Painted memories
(Back and forth)
Without words
(Back and forth)
In the center of a
(Back and forth)
Stark white wall
(Back and forth)
Identical to this
(Back and forth)
Comfy corner
(Back and forth)
My jacket keeping me warm
(Back and forth)
But it will never chase away
(Back and forth)
The coldness in my soul
(Back and forth)
My problem hissing in my thoughts
(Back and forth)
But for now I will ignore it
(Back and forth)
And draw my knees to my chest
(Back and forth)
Rocking
(Back and forth)
Paradise has it's horrors
(Back and forth)
Like this place
(Back and forth)
But this is better than before
(Back and forth)
I've got helpers
(Back and forth)
They come in here once in a while
(Back and forth)
Ask me how I'm doing
(Back and forth)
Always greet me with a smile
(Back and forth)
And a bowl of Macaroni
(Back and forth)
From the cafeteria
(Back and forth)
Every morning
(Back and forth)
They bring the food
(Back and forth)
With the little mints
(Back and forth)
Round and white
(Back and forth)
Or oval and yellow
(Back and forth)
They tell me not to swallow them
(Back and forth)
And I obey
(Back and forth)
They make me happy
(Back and forth)
Nice and comfy
(Back and forth)
In my room
(Back and forth)
Lots of pillows
(Back and forth)
Along my walls
(Back and forth)
Every inch is cushioned
(Back and forth)
For my heavy head
(Back and forth)
To rest on
(Back and forth)
As I slip
(Back and forth)
Into my mind
(Back and forth)
That I once feared
(Back and forth)
Fear?
(Back and forth)
I don't remember it
(Back and forth)
Now I'm in the white room
(Back and forth)
With their help
(Back and forth)
