"you've gotta swim
swim for your life
swim for the music 
that saves you
when you're not so sure you'll survive
you gotta swim
and swim when it hurts
the whole world is watching
you haven't come this far
to fall off the earth
the currents will pull you
away from your love
just keep your head above…"

- from "swim" by jack's mannequin

"the animals, the animals
trapped, trapped, trapped 'till the cage is full
the cage is full
stay awake
in the dark, count mistakes
the light was off but now it's on
searching the ground for a bitter song
the sun is out, the day is new
and everyone is waiting, waiting on you
and you've got time…

he came from my home town
he wore his passion for his woman
like a thorny crown
he said "Delores
i live in fear
my love for you's so overpowering
i'm afraid that i will disappear""
