at the beginning of time before there were waves we'd sit in our boats we'd float there all day and there weren't any waves 'cause there wasn't any wind 'cause there wasn't any sun we were waiting for the world to begin we were waiting in the darkness each in our own boat each in our own thoughts sometimes you could hear people talking amongst themselves but... (someone had a boat with wheels and I said you're a bit early but I know how you feel) but mostly it was just silence and the silence only broken by the absence of the clinking of the masts and every now and then a bird would not fly by and someone would look up and say what wasn't that ? we were waiting in the darkness and one night (or was it day?) I was awoken from a dream I was dreaming of someplace like I'd never been and I heard someone say someone's fallen in and they can't swim so I leaned out and I pulled them in and he was holding his head and it was huge and shaped like a fish and he slid down to the crook of the keel and when I was sure he'd fallen asleep I fell back to my reverie we were waiting waiting waiting waiting in the darkness and you know what I miss most about that time? it was the quality of blackness it was soft somehow in the absence of fear you could take it into your mouth and send it out through your teeth my dear but the silence... oh, if I could go back to those times I'd take that silence there I'd take it into myself and bring it back to you and this is what I'd say waiting in the darkness at the beginning of time before there were waves we'd sit in our boats we'd float there all day (or was it night?) and there weren't any waves 'cause there wasn't any wind 'cause there wasn't any sun we were waiting for the world to begin we were waiting for the world to begin now? know.
