The widening gyre. One hand clapping.
We made a big mess. A qualified success.
And every minute the world ends for someone.
How do you keep on?
In a square in Paris, or a club in Nice;
where does it go wrong?

Gonna paint a backdrop. Gonna build a wall.
You can't do anything right.
You can't do anything at all.
Not here, not now.
Are you taking anything?
Are you seeing...
Checking, checking, checking, checking out...

And we can beat this yet, because somewhere birds are singing.
Sometimes it's all that you get to remember.
And we can beat this yet, because somewhere...

In a place where we're all holding hands,
No longer damaged. Damned.
Not here, not now.
We're finally checking out.
