You're leagues across a room The lighting's so dim I hardly see You're talking and waiting for me You're getting much smaller as you speak
You're pulling out your hair for nothing What you say to me rings clear I'm growing so big, so dumb and blind I'm forty stories high
Don't run away from me I tell you, my eyes are black as iron I'm stepping on houses, trees, and towns My crying makes everybody drown
I died right in the ocean I died just like a whale I died right in the ocean
