Unfamiliar Room
===========


Are you familiar
with the feeling
of being
in an unfamiliar room?
It's been that all day and
it'll be that way soon.

I make sense when I want to
I make sense when I don't
If you don't want me to want to
Then maybe I won't

A single hanging light bulb swinging slow[ly] in the air
The smell of dust and pitch, something else and her perfume
Unfamiliar room, it's such an un-familiar room,
You woke up in a strange place
half past late or way too soon.

They said it would be for the better
Candy for dinner and drinks on the house
But where are my keys and my wife and my slipper?
And why am I in another unfamiliar room?

A revision from June 2015:




Unfamiliar Room
=============

A single hanging light bulb swinging slow[ly] in the air
The smell of dust and pitch, something else and her perfume
Unfamiliar room, it's such an un-familiar room,
You woke up in a strange place
twice as late or half as soon.

I make sense when I want to
I make sense when I don't
If you don't want me to want to
Then maybe I won't

Are you familiar
with the feeling
of being
in an unfamiliar room?
It's been so all day and
it'll be that way soon.

They said it would be for the better
Candy for dinner and drinks on the house
But where are my keys and my wife and my slipper?
And why am I in another unfamiliar room?
