"I am what I am and I am what I plan
And the world that has gathered around me
It seems quite grand

In this world of motion mining
I lay back on my fists
But then I reach around your long black gown
And grap your supple wrists

The entrance to the cavern is just below my bed
And the dust that has been gathered
And the fur that has been shed

I reach far back into empty black space
Hoping my fingertips will catch a small trace
Of the things that have been gathered there for years

But the letters that you sent me
And the cards that you signed
And the napkins and the flatware
And the plates of china fine
Or the gumballs or the games, the glasses or the meals
The pictures, the frames, the use of your wheels

The candy, the drinks and all of your friends
Will not bring us together again

And I guess that I'm sure that I think that I'm fine
And I think I'm pretty happy putting our life behind
But the images are strong and physical in my room
Makes me filter out the tie-down, the frustration
And the gloom

And I know that now it's an impossible thing
But sever the bond and your freedom will ring

I am what I am and I am what I plan
And the world that has gathered around me
It seems quite grand

In this world of motion mining
I lay back on my fists
But then I reach around your long black gown
And grap your supple wrists

The entrance to the cavern is just below my bed
And the dust that has been gathered
And the fur that has been shed

I reach far back into empty black space
Hoping my fingertips will catch a small trace
Of the things that have been gathered there for years

But the letters that you sent me
And the cards that you signed
And the napkins and the flatware
And the plates of china fine
Or the gumballs or the games, the glasses or the meals
The pictures, the frames, the use of your wheels

The candy, the drinks and all of your friends
Will not bring us together
The candy, the drinks and all of your friends
Will not bring us together
The candy, the drinks and all of your friends
Will not bring us together again"
