In The Equilibrium Zone

There’s ten per cent off everything at Iceland, they told me

Ten per cent off, ten per cent off

I was in the Equilibrium Zone

The voices on the radio were singing about it,

Singing their Siren Song

They were celebrating the fact that we were in the zone, in the zone

In the Equilibrium Zone…

 

 

I was coming around slowly –

Coming to my senses in the Equilibrium Zone

You know what it’s like when you

Wake up very, very slowly

Your head full of spongy soggy nothingness

The numbness slowly and painfully ebbing away

You’re very gradually thawing out,

You’re very gradually ‘coming to’…

 

 

The voices on the radio are singing – they are singing the Equilibrium Song,

It’s the Entropy Tango

They are celebrating the fact

Celebrating the fact

Rejoicing in the fact that we have arrived safely

Rejoicing in the fact that we have arrived safely and that we

Will not ever leave…

Rejoicing in the fact that we have arrived safely and that we will not ever leave…

 

 

People are going and coming, going and coming

Up and down the street.

Only they’re not really – it’s all just part of the show

No one’s going anywhere!

It’s all just part of the gentle illusion that’s being promoted

The gentle but insipid illusion

That no one can ever leave…
