In There

There's a whole world being born
I can walk around in it
I can reach down to the water
Cup it to my lips
The sky's electric
A warm wind blows
I'm going to hide here in a heaven
That no-one else knows
I can lift my arms out like a bird
Fly through the air

I'm in there

A lifetime trampled down
That's way long enough
When anything can happen
And usually does
I'm virtually steering it
I'm awake and I'm aware

I'm in there

I'm living it, feeling it
Seeing and believing it
I'm running through the options
And the world responds immediately
Totally, convincingly
I can be what I want to be
Wire myself up, dive into the machinery

Suddenly the sun sinks like a stone
There's a heartstopping hush
Night races through me in a cold rush
This is not my country
This is not my home
It's a closed system
And I'm here alone
I only wanted to be out of it
But I'm awake and I'm aware

I'm in there
