lyrics

Leaving ground - words don’t speak here
Leaving weather, atmosphere - I’m taking off

Where I was - nothing moves there
Leave the concrete, precast world - I’m headed off

Rest and calm - mere illusions
Fluctuation, drive and flow thus arise

Thoughts progress - Dissolution
Go the distance, even further - break the ties

Was I born to rise beyond
The point of no return
Where everything unthought
Will dawn on you?

We’re in motion
Feel the world as it accelerates
Have all connections cut
I’m breaking through

On the move - shunning system
Preconceptions never helped me get this far

Altitude, reach the open
Reach escape velocity - reach for the stars

Was I born ...

Countless times I've imagined the end of this, just over, gone
The low hum of the air conditioning, the outward bound highway
the strangely over-saturated blobs in my tired eyes, weeks 'n weeks of just hissing by
Countless times, though, I've also failed to do anything about it.
Miles of midnight woods, fog, showers, borrowing through something like thick coppice, even
In the vague grey between sleep and wake, it often felt as if...
I am exhausted, famished, leached, depleted. End of the line.

Leaving ground - words don’t speak here
Leaving weather, atmosphere - I’m taking off

Where I was - nothing moves there
Leave the concrete, precast world - I’m headed off

Was I born...
