[Chorus] Interrupting my train of thought Lines of longitude and latitude Define and refine my altitude
The curtain’s undrawn, Harness fitted, no escape ; Common and peaceful, duck, flat, lowland, Landscape, canal, canard, water coloured
Crystal palaces for floral kings, A well-known waving span of wings Witness the sinking of the sun, A deep breath of submission has begun.

Interrupting my train of thought Lines of longitude and latitude Define and refine my altitude. »
