In A Bubble

 

I feel like I’m in a bubble with impenetrable walls,

I should be feeling safe in here but I don’t at all.

 

The noise is bouncing round me now, in a spiral motion;

I can feel myself just shutting down, turning off emotion.

 

The voices they are echoing, clashing on the bubble,

echoing inside so much I know that I’m in trouble.

 

I want to cower down, I want to get flat on the floor --

from there I could just crawl my way across to reach that door;

 

but I’m gonna have to stay here, I’m gonna have to take it.

This bubble is invisible so I’ll really have to fake it --

 

I’ll take my place in all the queues, I’ll force my face to smile,

I’ll switch to autopilot as this is sure to take a while.

 

I’ll try and take the words in, not just stare at the damn clock,

waiting just to make escape and let the bubble pop.
