The World Goes On Around Me – Written Sunday 14th December 2003 (Aged 28)

The World Goes On Around Me

the world goes on around
but it is just not the same anymore
i have checked my feet
and it is a different floor
i looked in the mirror
i checked my eyes
and then i swam to the surface
only to notice that it is a different sky
the world goes on around me
responding to its civil unrest
people arguing for no good reason
and there is never a lot of respect
but i just cannot see it
i just cannot focus on the strain
i just move out with the pain
the world goes on around me
but it is just the not the same anymore




James Garratt – Sunday 14th December 2003
