We Can’t Believe You’ve Got This Far

You’ve tasted it,
Now make it,

Get out your
Knives and pans,

Your plans and dreams,
Ingredients and spoons,

You’ve only got one hour.

Break out on your own,
Strive forth with a purpose

And sever all ties
With those that you love,

The ones that you cherish
And hold dear.

Forget them.

They’re Gone.

Start your life afresh
And take a new name,

Live in a new city,

Where no one recognises
Your face,

Where no one knows the things
That you’ve been through,
Your sorrows and crimes

And all those harrowing times
You told us about earlier.

Become invisible.

A ghost.

And do your best
Not to burn the toast.
