I'm walking out in a force-ten gale
Birds thrown around, bullets for hail
The roof is pulling off by its fingernails
Your voice is rapping on my window-sill

Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind
Yesterday's people in a scatterbrain
Any fool can easy pick a hole
(I wish I could fall in)
A moving target in a firing range

Somewhere I'm not
Somewhere I'm not
Lightning fuse, powercut
