November 1983




Round and round you go

Where youll stop no-one knows

You took the chance some time ago

And now youve been dragged in

No more freedom, no more time

The life youve lived no more sane

Now a canoe in the rapids

Youre following a furious course

Youre cut off from all escape

Oh yes!  youre committed now


You thought youd get out

Once when the going got tough

But when the going got tough

You found you had stayed

No excuses, no complaints

Not even a trace of regret

How can you mind what you have done

The entrapment is pleasant some times

Friendship binds with cords of love

Oh yes! youre committed now
