He looks in the mirror. Nothing is clear. Where’s he taking it from here? goes his mind, dead or alive inside fluorescent lights. Open his hand, hand on the desk, desk in the corner. Three stories at best. The locks are turning, doors in the hall, there’s no way out. Oh, going nowhere anywhere. Oh, going nowhere anywhere. I have a hard time wanting to help. I think of myself. Leave the glass upon the shelf. Don’t open the door, no matter who for. But will I see his face before he goes? I’ll never know just what what what was wrong. Not listening, not sinking in, we’re two brick walls. Oh, going nowhere anywhere. Oh, going nowhere anywhere. Oh, what do you want? I’ve got a funny feeling you don’t even know. Don’t know. But now you say you’re feeling fine.
