Are you missing us?
Maybe wanting to be kissing us?
If you must, then please don’t be dismissing us
When we’re gone, bailin’ on the bus

Are we immersed in a sea of replicants?
Hard exteriors and fake gold fronts
Losing yourself in the flavor of the month
Gotta be a better reason to colonize a star
Gotta be a better reason man’s come so far

Is that you in the mama-ocean-people-sea?
Is that you in this dream I see waving me?
Closer with one hand
While the other shields your eyes as if surprised
To see the universe begin

Being up on the mindspin
Are you still glad that it has been
Six years and seven months
This is what you want, don’t front
I’m feelin’ it right now
In this, the gold hour
Part clock and part man
Reconciling my life span

Keeping things whole
We move out of the space where air flows
When all of a sudden, here we are, and here we go

The evolutionary mind turns twists, backflips
In space-time, the continuum
Real-life planetarium
It’s a natural fact
Time is speeding up, there isn’t much left
Heart rate increasing
Bustin’ through your chest, compressed
Is your life in the physical
But out of memory comes a vision
Which is a miracle, yeah, that
Normally, we just can’t see
It’s not natural or typical
Of our same old thing
Livin’ too fast, unable to grasp the past
Or the future, when, at last
We ripple after our big splash


You remain and refrain
From the pain of wasted time
The last thing on my mind is
Running high, fuel supply
Reason why we just don’t quit
Can you get with a melding of two minds?
(A melding of two minds)
What’s the worst thing you could find?
(Worst thing you could find)
A paper trail that prevails in demystification
People (people)
Want to believe (want to)
In mysteries
People (people)
Want to believe (want to)
In mysteries

Is the truth so bad? (so bad)
Is the truth so bad? (so bad)
Is the truth so bad? (so bad)
Is the truth so bad? (so bad)

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
