yet we are safe as any house,

secure but trapped in Amber

 

I'm stuck and its getting harder

I watch myself get fossilized,

years go by and I turn to rock,

humble yet curious...

The place where I throw up

The sheets seem a tide of amber

In bed I get quite bilious

When over you I try to clamber
