We came to order accidentally
A river’s path follows gravity
And these machines are always innocent
We drift along in insignificance

I break in down and put it back again
Try to make sense of the loss of him
A frame of mind has been broken in
The pane like ashes scattered in the wind

And before you know…

Hits like a head-rush
Into the unknown
I try to reach out
I don’t want to be here

Here’s an alternative philosophy
Patterns of truth in the tapestry
How can infinity just be?
The beauty lies in the mystery

I’m crying out for a reason
A spark of light to help me see again
I came to terms with the simplicity
A thousand reasons wouldn’t change a thing

Every time I look at how
Time’s changed
Life’s frayed
I remember all these threads
And they make me lose my mind

Hits like a head-rush
Into the unknown
I try to reach out
I don’t want to be here
