Say we know the world in terms
your terms are not my terms or
the other way makes no difference
then just say what is the known
world me and you which is to say
nothing we know nothing and it's
a lonely place the world such as
it is if these be the terms I want
your company your care here take
mine and I alike will take yours
there now we're getting somewhere
give me your hand what have we to
do with the world and its terms
except whatever way to be could 
only be to be in it them.
