    White stick with a red light
    Floats past her on the right
    White stick on the rock
    Roping in the wind
    Are you hungry?

    Do you know what to eat
    Floating in the blue
    I hear you your voice
    It comes out above my head
    Close to you, close to you

    There is one bird in my house
    She said you woke up from a dream
    He heard Mama Cass
    He felt better if I would
    have known (those) things
    It damped his mood for a second
    Then he remembered where he was
    He regained his perspective
    That felt a
    Lot better

    It gets much better
    He laid down on his bed
    With the front door open
    And the sunlight
    flooding into the room
    He smelt tire
    He laid back listening to a fly

    He saw washing hanging
    In the sun
    He caught a fleeting
    glimpse of a man
    moving uphill
    pursued by a bus
    He saw a white church with a
    Three blue-domed roof
    A crucifix on the top
    And an ant walked
    Along the edge of his book
    He heard another bell
    And a (braying mustache(?))
    And a moped started up
    Sounding like a chainsaw
    of tiny firecrackers
    And he smelled tire again
    A fly came dim
    Along the shaft of sunlight
    Coming through the open door
    He watched it cross the room
    And get halfway and then it
    Turned around and left, he laughed

    There is one bird in my house
