First there was nothing and my head began,

I've sent my messages, finished and ran

I've sent out my stuff, but where is it?

Okay, I've got it, but ring the bell

And step back one and play your guitar normally.

Now press enter and stand it on the floor.

I'll take a new page and then return,

Switch to the outside then back in.

Escape the chain and take control,

One, two, three, four...

Wait, no I didn't get it!

We are lazy, at the same time

The box we've sent is gone for good

This is because our order was cancelled

And the middle was out of the hood.

The box is gone, so we need another spare

But quick! We have to get out!

I've read between the documents, between the crowds

Between the records, between the ones

And now, yes! I'm going somewhere

I know where it is, but you figure it out there.
