What I draw today
Will be recognized as shape…

I spoke to the base
And the base says “we wait”
So I smoke an old cigar
While the giant sun fades

See, I spoke to the base
And the base says “we wait”
And the base says we’re safe

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then… oh I feel, you’re truly anesthetized
That’s why…

When I walk today
It’s in silence and in rain…

Can a man turn the page
While he’s trying to amaze?
So I hold my arms apart
But don’t deny you any pain
See, I spoke to the base
And the base says “we┬┤re there”
And the base says “we win”

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then… oh I feel those beauties, this life belies…

They’re like street lights
They tunnel on and on
Into these deep nights
Where the lights circle on… are so steep

So steep…
I count the falling stars
So steep…
Anonymous forces
So steep…
That broken street light
So steep…
Life is like a drug
Sky less night
So steep…
I count the falling stars
So steep… I will not be staying long

Now and then I can see the truth above the lies
Now and then I can see those beauties that shun my eye…
That’s why…
