I’m standing on the diving board so now my time has come

I’d like to thank the prison guards each and every one

I have suffered all the torture, I didn’t think I would

The starving and the torture have not done much good.

Losing weight is easy when you are in jail.

We didn’t get much sunshine so I’ve turned quite pale.

I could hear some others screaming but I just sang my song

Take me to the northern hills for that’s where I belong

Take me to my garden, will you find my cat

I’m used now to being alone but I would like him back.

I’ve spent so long in darkness with ceilings low and grim

I’m ready for the dive now although I cannot swim
