To know nothing but this room
To see only my cellmate
The work is hard, but it's meant to hurt
I know only what you tell me

Agathe's eyes caught the light
Like spring's first crushed diamonds
But that was long before the storm
The desensitising silence

Everything is so golden
On the day my spirit just gives out
I let the supple night take over

When the tape from the window peels
The stars suggest something more
I see outlines of a million lifetimes
Still worth living for

Is it too late for me?
Should I resign myself to dust?
Still I see an outreached hand
It's in that I must trust

It stood look all the rest
It looked like all the rest
Rip up these boards
Tear down these walls
We'll find a way home
But we'll never know how many roads
