Have you ever wondered
Well I have
About how when I say, say, red
For example, there's no way of knowing if red
Means the same thing in your head
As red means in my head when someone says red

And how if we are traveling at
Almost the speed of light
And we're holding a light
That light would still travel away from us
At the full speed of light
Which seems right in a way
What I'm trying to say
I'm not sure
But I wonder if inside my head
I'm not just a bit different from some of my friends
Thesе answers that come into my mind unbidden
Thеse stories delivered to me fully written
And when everyone shouts like they seem to like shouting
The noise in my head is incredibly loud
And I just wish they'd stop
My dad and my mum
And the telly and stories would stop for just once
And I'm sorry
I'm not quite explaining it right
But this noise becomes anger and the anger is light
And the burning inside me would usually fade
But it isn't today!
And the heat and the shouting
And my heart is pounding
And my eyes are burning
And suddenly everything, everything is...

Like silence, but not really silent
Just that still sort of quiet
Like the sound of a page being turned in a book
Or a pause in a walk in the woods

Like silence, but not really silent
Just that nice kind of quiet
Like the sound when you lie upside down in your bed
Just the sound of your heart in your head

And though the people around me
Their mouths are still moving
The words they are forming
Cannot reach me anymore!
And it is quiet
And I am warm
Like I've sailed
Into the eye of the storm
