Tunnel The tenth of July, 1985 Don't ask stupid questions I got bored I had nothing to do I was bored I had, I had not ? Fifteen weeks since the light has gone Fifteen weeks with the same shirt on A thousand bodies stink and sweat and somebody's trying to roll a cigarette Clean mister Clean mister Clean missed her Clean missed her ? Relax Clean mister Fifteen weeks with the same shirt on Clean mister Clean mister Clean missed her Clean missed her Just relax and enjoy it it's nothing really Let's get you out of those wet clothes C'mon, just lift yourself up, get these awful trousers off You'll feel so much better afterwards Just close your eyes and let it ooze all over you Trickling down your back, warm and sticky Isn't that nice? No, don't speak just let yourself go and you'll sink Let yourself go sinking down, deeper and deeper and deeper At three o'clock that morning I awoke in an unfamiliar room in my hands like sodden paper It was a thick, glutinous, pale green liquid The sunlight through net curtains Going six hundred miles an hour into brilliant white light There's a brass band playing somewhere ? Roll over on to your back and wait for the talculm But what's that smell? Pull back the light, crisp, linen sheets and find that sweat they were only two hours before The bedroom tips sideways NoNoNoNoNoNoNO! Let me out! Let me out! ... I've got to get out of that stinking shit-hole ? I would lie there and see green fields and see the sky blue, the sky blue above me And be clean again I know I'll never, ever be clean again Never be clean again.
