Everything’s out of kilter
life has lost its balance wheel
the mainspring’s gone all slinky
the escapement’s screwed,
he thinks she is to blame
she thinks his excuses are lame,
I think that skydiving’s a viable
option and a parachute is in my
she packs it happily for me
I get worried
perhaps I’ll go sailing instead.
