the point on the edge that turns


when it isn't enough to be weird

when it isn't enough to be funny

reality gathering speed

pleads for shelter and just enough money

when the middle class values scream what!

ever happened to all that we've got?

the air in the chamber starts moving

in sounds that the masses can hear

so the forces of wealth weave and hide

oblivious to working day pride

until with a shock wave a change

the power is all re-arranged

don't grab it or stab it, remain

the journey discovering new plains

the mountains are there for the climbing

and the essence is all in the timing.
