looking up the trail, looking at the trees
there's a black hole among the many leaves
you know what I think as I get closer?
I move up the trail slower and slower
is it a doorway to another world?
if I go in will I be imperiled?
what could possibly be for me to see?
can it be Tennessee? a sea? a bee?
I'm going in there and I'm going through
maybe on the other side is Peru
I am at the entrance to the black hole
going into the darkness, to my goal
the trail narrows down into a funnel
there's a light at the end of the tunnel
it spits me out into the bright daylight
that wasn't scarey, it wasn't a fright
it's just more of the same, only reversed
I got through it and I got past the worst
I look behind me and what do I see?
A black hole in the trees, among the leaves
