about

In the altered state between an alert sleep and a darkened consciousness, Will finds himself dragged in a stream of strangers speaking unknown idioms. Unable to understand, unable to remember his own origins. Engulfed by a city with flashing lights, feeling instead the loneliness of a cold dark plain.

lyrics

City lights arising and I wake up
I begin to walk in the human tide
Can’t remember where I’m from – where am I
Don’t know even how to talk – how to recognize

Desert dark inside me it’s all I have
While I feel surrounded by passing crowd
Can’t remember where I failed – where’s the fault
Don’t know even what is to repair – how to apologize

Feel my mind is burning, will I ever learn again?
Memories are trapped in walls, without any way to set them free
They align like summer ghosts, without any way to set them free
Feel my mind is burning
Will I ever learn again (to comunicate)?

City lights are pulsing with messy toungues
Desert dark behind me it’s all I lust
Can’t remember what I made of – what am I
Don’t know even how to solve – this riddle of mine

Memories are trapped in walls, without any way to set them free
They align like summer ghosts, without any way to set them free – set me free

believe me it’s hard - discerning all lies
from a truth set aside
when deception is your mind
believe me it’s hard - disclaiming all the lies
for a truth left behind
when the lag is your mind

I walk alone – I grow alone
I dream alone, again, the lights of the city
