An ordinary life,
An ordinary day
I never knew it
Any other way

The time fades away
Like the night into the day
Another hour lost
Another bill to pay

The morning washes over me
circling towards the drain
I try to keep going
Ignoring the pain

Looking down at myself,
Staring fear in the face
In the rippling water
I'm being taken from this

Inner disaster
Growing faster
In my mind

I am drifting
Thoughts and memories drift away...

Weigh your future
Bury your past
The time will come
When the first are last

------

This present moment
Reality so unreal
Functionality fading
Don't understand what I feel

Where is this going?
Can't recall myself
No regard for my life
No regard for my health

Myself to the left
The world to the right
I'm not quite ready
To give up this fight

No sense of control
Almost like possession
Distorted consciousness
Precious regression

What is this I feel?
Taking over me
I'm now somewhere else
momentarily

Where am I?
Is this real?
Losing touch
With myself

------------

It grips my being
and I cannot speak
Its powerful release
Leaves me weak

In silent euphoria
Deafening bliss

Captivated
By magnificence
I witness
My insignificance

Everything fades,
Everything fades...

Inner disaster
Growing faster
In my mind

I am drifting
Thoughts and memories drift away...

Weigh your future
Bury your past
The time will come
When the first are last
Track 1 from my band's album Altered State

Captivated
By magnificence
I witness
My insignificance

Weigh your future
Bury your past
The time will come
When the first are last
