"normal" is a tightrope

with the ground so far below
one foot behind the other
see how far that you can go
.
a frantic pace will kill you
so you've got to take it slow
"normal" is a tightrope
and your balance is your foe
.
"normal" is a river
with few stones to step across
the swirling eddies swallow
leaves no witness to your loss
.
you have no leg to stand on
with the current is the boss
"normal" is a river
let the waters catch and toss
.
"normal" is a tunnel
barely room to make it through
the walls are bulging inwards
and the caverns, small and few
.
you've no sense of direction
for your compass lost its screw
"normal" is a tunnel
and there's no one there but you
