cure for optimism lyrics – porcupine tree

“cure for optimism”

up there a mountain rises
down here an ocean dives
a stranger with a head full of lead
photographs me

steel bars and a doctor’s note
don’t give up
they can plead and beg but don’t let them fix your head

outside a path to knowledge
inside a waste of cells
a serpent with a mobile phone
sweet talks me
