I see eyes in the blinds 

They look in my soul 

And I look back. 

I find myself swaying 

I cannot look away 

This chair rocks 

And rocks 

My mind starts to wander 

About lives lost 

Lives taken too soon 

And I suddenly realize 

Why I cannot look away. 

I feel my soul leave my body 

It's departure leaving me cold. 

My bones shake, and the rocking chair keeps rocking
