Dusk 06:42
twisted... don’t know where the hell i am blinded... will i ever see you again silent... regretting the words i wish were said deafened... if only i could hear your voice again winter... when will this november ever end bitter... so ugly just under the skin distant... i can feel you begin to pull away all that’s left inside... bleeds into the falling rain haunted... is there no escape from your distant memory wasted... is this all i was ever meant to be broken... left and abandoned here to rust leave now... before the rising of the dusk
2.
a laser beam like out of a dream paralyzed a muted scream like a movie theme lights up the sky... fireflies dance around your eyes feel the rise so step inside begin the ride it’s your time to fly... See with my eyes believe in my mind but i can’t explain light up the sky in the dead of the night like it was yesterday what is it you want why would you come all this way? of all the people around inside of this town why am i to blame? bleeding out... through the last refrain lost inside... of what you can’t explain feel the skid... across a blind turn the flame ignites... into a slow burn
3.
wherever I go i’ll be watching you... whatever the road i’ll be right by you this whole thing has me spinning round and round... my crazy little world has turned upside down.
4.
i wish i had a time machine, so i wouldn’t have to dream. i understand your need to be, a million miles away from me. the sky was so brilliant blue and i was lost in the sunshine of you... and it’s another sunny day, but your a million miles away... away... from me. i wish i could change your mind the way it has a thousand times. remember how it felt that day, when you looked at me that way? i wish i had a time machine, so i wouldn’t have to dream but i understand your need to be, a million miles away from me. the sky was so brilliant blue, and i was lost in the sunshine of you. ...and its another sunny day but you’re a million miles away. and someday you will wake up and this will all have gone away. it’s time to make your mind up because that someday is today. today... i wish i had a time machine so i can finally end this dream but i understand you have to be... a million miles away from me...
5.
See with my eyes, believe in my mind but i can’t explain light up the sky in the dead of the night like it was yesterday what is it you want why would you come all this way? of all the people around inside of this town why am i to blame? wherever i go i’ll be watching you whatever the road i’ll be right by you. this whole thing has me spinning round and round my crazy little world is turned upside down what’s left to take there must be some mistake i’m nobody you want some diplomat, some fat bureaucrat not some guy like me. you won’t get me to sing cause i don’t know a thing i have nothing to say. so take what you’ve found, put me back down and go away...

Outerspaced 03:14

Spiraling 05:01
sail along... going nowhere. after all you were already there... adrift in space, through the milky way to the promised land. floating past the great expanse, of your own head. celestial sea... tranquility across the heavens a journey from what i’ve become... the emptiness through the void of celluloid, to the darkness it won’t be long til i’ve gone past the conscious. you better not take too long... you better not wait too long...

wherever I go i’ll be watching you... whatever the road i’ll be right by you... no matter how far... how distant the star... this whole thing has me spinning round and round. my entire world is turning upside down. but i’ll keep holding on... we’ll weather the storm. whenever i feel alone it helps to know that you’ll always be there it keeps me hanging on when things don’t always go quite as planned. together we’ll make it through whatever this life throws our way. it is what keeps me strong what keeps me hanging on why we will weather the storm wherever I go i’ll be watching you... whatever the road i’ll be right by you... no matter how far... how distant the star... this whole thing has me spinning round and round. my entire world is turning upside down. but i’ll keep holding on... we’ll weather the storm. When I am Far From Home. I'll keep you close in my memory That is what drives me on and gets me through til the end of the day It was keeps me strong... What keeps me holding on... why we will weather the storm This whole crazy world has got me spinning round...

Lifeline 03:17
don’t know where you come from don’t know where you’re going to i don’t know why you think you need me to come back with you we know exactly who you are we’ve been waiting for you for the longest time I don’t know who you’re talking to i don’t belong here with you... I have things to do today let’s go sir right this way you can't just take my world from me it was going to happen eventually what makes you suddenly appear and take us all away from here and leave everything we know behind on psychedelic overdrive watch your step and hold on tight we’ll be traveling at the speed of light i have bunch of shit to do and not a bit involving you... i don’t think i’ve made it clear gonna get myself right out of here it doesn’t matter what you say you’ll be coming with us anyway throw me a lifeline...
12.
Wherevet you go, I'll be watching you... See with my eyes, believe in my mind but i can’t explain light up the sky in the dead of the night like it was yesterday what is it you want why would you come all this way? of all the people around inside of this town why am i to blame? what’s left to take there must be some mistake i’m nobody you want some diplomat, some fat bureaucrat not some guy like me. you won’t get me to sing cause i don’t know a thing, i have nothing to say. so take what you’ve found, put me back down and go away!

i really have to tell you this is not who i am i was really quite normal like any other man but then it all happened with no probably cause it changed everything around me it changed who i was (don’t know who to believe can’t wake or go to sleep) when i walk into a room its like i’m not really there some people look away the others stop & stare. lying here beside myself and listening to the rain i asked for help to call someone but no one really came did i want someone to listen or just apportion blame? it was easier to say he’s probably gone insane. from the back-streets with their corner shops to the houses in pall mall to the quacks on harley street to the beggars down the hall i understand that all of this defies reality but all the really matters is something happened to me... slow burn... bleed it out through the last refrain... lost inside what you can’t explain begin the skid across a blind turn... the flame ignites into a slow burn bleed it out through the last refrain... trying to cope with what you can’t explain begin the skid across a blind turn... it all erupts into a slow burn
14.
i know i’m lost but it’s vaguely clear that sometime long ago they had taken me here familiar place that i can’t describe buried deep within the recess of my mind i know i’m here, not sure where that is all i know is that its not supposed to exist when the silence comes its about to start void of sound except for their beating hearts they come for me i just felt it move system ctrl alt del ... reboot
