English German

IO

The zeroes are to come
The zeroes have begun
It's a welcome song
Inside my head
And I feel dizzy
As virtual disequilibrium
Is closing in again

Spying out the currents
And execrated forests
The air is still damp
After all these years of rain
And again and again
Too far out on unknown ground
Will we play Snakes and Ladders

Inside
It's all IO
The word I say
When nothing's real
But hand me down conversation

Inside
Sick of reading signs
The dreams have turned full circle
And they're creeping slowly
Where nothing's real
Where colours go
Inside

And I'm only to ask
For some more time
To sum this all up
To adjust my serenity
