                           Zaczniemy od jutra
                                 Ale co?
                        Zawiesimy firanki oczu
                  Odkryjemy pustkę beztroskich dni
                             Zadamy im cios
                        Milczącym spojrzeniem
                          Zginą bezpowrotnie
