about

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.

lyrics

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
