a vision in my mind comes deep in the darkness
envisioning long long ago before I even knew or saw
a twisted plot, a sad longing, a lingering guilt
the characters named, well the main players.
but the setting is confused, I'll have to work on that tonight in my dreams.

If I could hold your beauty within my sight
I'm certain the day would end up right
If I could touch your satin skin
My smile would cease to be thin

What will this day bring?
What obstacles shall I encounter
what shall put me to the test?
Challenge is the basis of success
an encouragement to continue
With this thought in mind
I shall see with what kind.

1998

Where is my spirit
my heart is lost
I keep fighting the mist
it continues to cloud my judgment
confusing me
and strangling me
I'm so unhappy with being unhappy
Where is the life I once knew
what have I done with it

1997

Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.
