The boy who came to a jammy death from the apartment below

The broken boy from downstairs

Sits on the step and stares and stares

He dreams the dreams of distant lands

A place when he can come alive

He holds out his hands

And with a giant leap

Jumps off the staircase

Lands in a heap

His body lies still

It is there to this day

Destined never to leave this place

As his soul wanders wearily

On the staircase of dreams

He stares into the darkness

Waiting… Waiting… Waiting
