That cannot be underestimated
And when you there you really there
And it really is
Another world
And you wonder will you ever walk with
Normal folk again
Or if you even
Want to
And as you look up at the blossom overhead
A little flicker in the chest
The big joke
I always loved the flower burst
The rose in the stem
Life and death in one
That beautiful signal of success
