    It all began with the bright light
    The bright light and the noise
    The chaos of the senses and the scream of desire

    Touching and being touched
    A million loose ends to tie up
    Ticking of the clock and the cradle rock

    The colours stand still
    And then they move around
    Comin' in and out of focus upside down

    Empty winter trees
    How space feels Love of the soft ... flowers and the sky

    One fine day
    The chaos subsides
    Bleeds into awareness
    And a lifetime of surprise

    The beauty of your mother's eyes
    The pain when you fall
    You drink it in and marvel at it all
    But you never really figure it out

    You get used to it

    The babble of the family
    And the dumb TV
    Roar of the traffic and the thunder of jets

    Chemicals in the water
    Drugs in the food
    The heat of the kitchen and the beat of the system

    The attitude of authority
    The laws and the rules
    Hit me square in the face, first morning at school

    The heroes and the zeroes
    The first love of my life
    When to kiss and to kick and to keep your head down when they're choosing the sides
    I was never any good at it
    I was terrified most of the time
    I never got over it
    I got used to it

    Alone in the city at seventeen
    With the hollow, the lonely
    The drowning and the drowned
    I was made to feel worthless
    The wretched and the mean
    Beat me up like a weapon
    I can't run away from or find a way round
    Holdin' on, holdin' on

    The greed and the missiles
    Exploding somewhere every day
    Hideous dark secrets under the sea and in holes in the ground

    The cold war's gone
    Those bastards'll find us another one
    They're here to protect you, don't you know?
    So get used to it Get used to it!

    The clash of religions
    The loaded prayers
    The face of starvation and the state of the nation

    The sense that it's useless
    And the fear to try
    Not believing the leaders, the media that feeds us
    Living with the big lie

    You get used to it
