I crashed out in the cold,
When I awoke the world looked very different from the one I’d left behind.
I stood right up and wandered blind into the loss of mind.

Bringing up the fear now, it’s got me in a double bind,
Like a blizzard in a harness, it’s quite the spectacle.
It sails itself around for me.
You’ve given up. It got emotional, friend,
But now you’ve run to ground and sprung to skeptical.
I’ve got a bad feeling about last week and now’s the time to split the scene,
I kept my part of the bargain, kept myself unseen.

If I could face again this misery,
If I could pick my flashback I would have kicked them back.
So all the deeds that fell inside this open grave could:
Stirrup, saddle up, gallop out of the paddock.
I just can’t tell if it’s horse pucky or if it’s for real,
What the hey, dear Lord, no deal.
We’ll know at last if your whole trip was bogus or real,
Until then: Dear deal.
