Dear diary, what a day it's been
Dear diary, it's been just like a dream 
Woke up too late.  Wasn't where I should have been
For goodness sake, what's happening to me? 
 Write lightly, yours truly, dear diary 

It was cold outside my door 
So many people by the score  Rushing around as senselessly 
They don't notice there's people like me 
 Write lightly, yours truly, dear diary 

They don't know what they're playing 
They've got no way of knowing what the game is
 Still they carry on doing what they can 
 Outside me, yours truly, dear diary 

It's over.  Will tomorrow be the same? 
I know that they're really not to blame 
If they weren't so blind, then surely they'd see 
There's a much better way for them to be 
 Inside me, yours truly, dear diary 

 Somebody exploded an H-bomb today 
But it wasn't anyone I knew
