Those nights that never end

How long is that?
Three billion,
One hundred and fifty five million, 
Nine hundred and seventy three thousand,
Six hundred seconds.
Height hundred and seventy six million hours,
Or thirty six thousand five hundred days.
Almost as long as
One of those endless,
And dark nights of the soul.
Those nights that never end,
When you believe
You’ll never see the sunrise again,
When a single second feels like,
A century.

Jarvis Cocker
In “Century”, Feist. “Pleasure”, 2017.
