I think I came up with the music for this song the same week as "The Pieces" and quickly recorded a demo where I sang a bunch of gibberish. Jeff approach to writing the lyrics was to take my nonsense and try to decipher it; to try to figure out what I was actually singing. I think I wrote the chorus lyrics to satisfy my need for a song called "Disappear" as I mentioned.

We had recorded a demo with Jay on guitar which was good but inspiration hit me and I found a vibraphone style that worked even better.


Aiming to get high and up late
Not that it's been so long
Rising through the smoke that it makes
better hold on

Maybe I should put on my skates
It's time to look alive now
Signed up for a slippery fate
and I'm sinking ... sinking down

I don't know where I go half the time
But I get there
With a wham who I am disappears
Now he's gone, gone, so long

Laserproof but not overplayed
It's nothing you can ride on
Giving all my memories away
Now they're all gone ... all gone

I dont care if I'm where I belong
'Cause I'm somewhere
All because who I was disappeared
Now he's gone

Ask me if I've been away
Really was it so long
Did you miss me or was I delayed?
If you came with, you'd be there by now

In the end I'm not anyone here
So I'm leaving
All because who I was disappeared
Now he's gone
