I stagger on still

Silence , stillness and darkness

Were my universe.

Strange impressions and places

Were my own palaces.

For i was king of my kingdom

All my thoughts were my subjects

And all my thoughts, my nightmares.

And my beautiful dreams, stillborn.

 

Yet I stagger onwards

Yet I stagger on relentless

Yet I stagger on and on and on.

 

In time, in time, in time

The infant condition of my lost soul

Will thrive in the forest solitudes.

I will inhale the sun

And exhale some of the pain.

If, but for a minute, I will rejoice.

If but a minute, i will be human.

And they will try to bring me down.

Yet i will stagger onwards

Until silence, stillness and darkness

Become my universe again.

 

Yet I stagger onwards

Yet I stagger on relentless

Yet I stagger on and on and on.
