This is where we get a glimpse into the Narrator's life. This is a song written from their perspective, about themselves. Here we basically learn that their job is to go into an office and "see" people's lives and narrate them. Some Narrators do spoken word recordings of their narrations. Some do written testimonies of what they observe. It's not explicitly stated but the Narrator is what connects the rest of the characters together. The Narrator is assigned to the Boy, the Girl, the Father, and the Son.
i don't feel like i am here anymore
unaffected by these people's lives
except how they fill my mind
all i do is talk them through
what they do but they'll never know
am i even a voice inside their heads?
what am i to them?
do they know that someone knows about them?
what am i to anyone?
i wonder daily what the world is like
outside these office walls
where we slave away at writing down
or sounding out everyone's every move
i know what it's like but i don't know what it's like
i know what they do
i know what they feel
i know but i don't know what it's like at all
