Another day, another night - another mortal coil.

Good morning, good evening,

Such a lovely day, this night!

Clear aside your cobwebs,

But move at your delight.

The setting dawn can wait

So long as you're alright.

 

Clocks tick, but do not move,

They've no need anyway.

You'll just be in your room

And on your perch to stay.

Take time you'll always have

Deciding what to play.

 

You'll never have to leave

Your cozy wonderland.

In here there's no appointment

Or activities long planned.

Not a care or a worry,

Now doesn't that sound grand?

 

A phone call? Ignore it.

A door knock? Don't bother.

It doesn't matter who they are,

Be friend or worried mother.

The outside world is pain,

But we always have each other.
