I approached him at the party
Because I didn't know anyone,
Because he looked harmless,
Because he stood alone,
And I introduced myself.
You must know a lot of these people,
And he looked straight ahead and said,
All my friends live underground.
And then I realized that he was almost dead,
And I had the idiotic notion that I could help him.
But then he looked right at me
And it hit me that I too was almost dead,
That nobody knew anybody here,
