How should I know?
Discarded tie, broken dress
What a fine mess
You're free to go

Squinted face towards the sun
It's not a spotlight
Look at the sky, it's so blue it's white
What have you done?

Salt sweat flash in the eyes
Over shoulders arms flung
You talk so old but you look so young
Set an alarm for the sunrise

Aren't you glad that our friends came to?
All fed and watered
Now that's the third time you've asked me that
Do you feel like yourself?
Do you feel like you're you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
Are you you?
