Has anything even happened

Take an elastic band

And a room full of your worst fears

Here's a scattering of some truths

And a kaleidoscope for your memories

And a speaker set to silent with a potential tape of screams

Use this elastic band to prove to me that your worst fear isn't true.

Take hold of the band as it's all you have got

And raise the kaleidoscope up to your memories.

With each turn of the band round your finger

You'll be one step closer to the truth

And one step closer to knowing if the tape is blank or guilty 

Round once someone knocks at the door -

You must go round once more

Round twice it doesn't feel quite right -

Round thrice -

That felt okay.

Lets do it again to make sure.

With each turn of the band my finger more blue,

With each three turns the kaleidoscope shifts,

The scattered truths stay the same whether or not the band turns around once more.

I cannot let go of the band

For then I will never know

But with every turn of the band

Memories' distortion will grow.

And your finger is turning more blue

Then you can't see the room or the floor

You lose sight of the scattered truths

Who stay undisturbed still

Whilst you wrestle within yourself

To try and cure an ill you didn't cause

An ill? you can't be sure

An ill that's a mistake?

A mistake you could forgive

If it was one a friend did make

Did I make the mistake? Is that accurate

Am I sure I can forgive myself? 

Is there anything I can feel?

Has anything even happened. 

Let's turn the band again to be sure

Now the band is so tight that I can't feel it wind

And I can't find my mind anymore.
