Up the Down Escalator...

Why am I always
        running up the down escalator
Crossing the runway
Wrong way
On a One Way?

Why does it always
        feel like I'm on the freight elevator
Going to the basement
Not sent,
But still I went.

I wander down blindly
       down the outer corridor
Looking for the right doorway
Can't stay
'Cause I can't pay.

Running in circles, up and down, round and round
I'm screaming for help,
But not making a sound.
