Track Name: The Sifter
And it happens over and over again
The water tears away at the bend
"Now wouldn't it be fun?"
Said a man
With a truncated thought of a plan
Not a care in the world
But lets just say there is

Something I left out

That I forgot to mention there's another dimension
I forgot to mention there's another dimension

And now it's another point of view
The current's reversed and the erosion too
Now what to make of this
I don't know
But it seems like a perpetual flow
Borrowed time returns itself and starts again

You thought you told me

But you forgot to mention there's another dimension
You forgot to mention there's another dimension

I forgot to mention there's another dimension
You forgot to mention there's another dimension
Track Name: Psygnosis
Is this what other people see?
I don't like it
Just try to be part of the sea
I can't hide it
This all comes flowing out of me
I correct it
Find your way out of the debris

I don't remember things being like this
It's not the way that it used to be
The days are falling right into an abyss
While others still proceed to chase after me

You'll find me staring at the ceiling fan
With the rain beating down on the skylights
My thoughts racing like the wind outside
Think I'll wander off into the twilight

And did you know there's a reason for this?
I won't pretend I didn't know
It's been a long time coming to this
And I think it's just the start of the show

About a thousand years from now
Somebody's watch falls off into the ocean
I think the temperature is dropping in here
And it's putting everything in slow motion
credits
Track Name: Interceptor
Afloat in the ocean
I look down below
You ask me something
Something I'll never know
I found the answer
But I don't understand

Interceptor
(You found a way into my mind)
Interceptor
(It shows at least that you're as kind)
Interceptor
(And all that's left is what is there)
Interceptor
(You found a way into my mind)
(A way into my mind)

A fork splits the road now
Wish I could turn around
And off in the distance
Snow falls to the ground
A flock of birds pass
And I can't help but smile

Interceptor
(You found a way into my mind)
Interceptor
(It shows at least that you're as kind)
Interceptor
(And all that's left is what is there)
Interceptor
(You found a way into my mind)
(A way into my mind)

Track Name: Fissure
A hole in the fabric
A rip in the static
And no one seems to notice

The hole in the fabric
The rip in the static
And no one seems to notice

Turn the valves
Push the buttons
Set the clocks right
Nothing you do will break the code
Leaves reverse
A boy trips on canvas
And spills shades of gray

A fissure opens up in the sky
Not many people asking why
I think I saw it passing through
But then again I guess what's new?

Track Name: Nautical Operator
In a deep, deep dream one night
A man's mind molds a wooden boat
He puts it in the water
And expects that it will float
The ship is only halfway complete
He lacked supplies to make all the rest
Surely he will sink fast
But I wonder,
Will he jump ship and fail the test?

An island appears,
Relieves his fears
Of never making it back out of this place
Or should he stay here and drown away,
Just to ignore the people and their race?

The island sounds like a better choice
I'll make a life for myself out here
And if I'm lucky, they'll never find me
And my tracks will disappear
Seems to good to be true though
So there's gotta be a catch or a trick
Maybe I'll figure it out
Take a different route
But for now I think I'll stick with my pick

You always wonder what will happen to you,
Maybe you focus on irrelevant things
This island always will be waiting for you
Just thank the future for it's kind offerings

Stuck in the background

Sail out again
Track Name: Snow
Wait for your turn
I've been here for days
Torn pages burn
Blown by the wind
But return

Cause we've lost our way
Thoughts fade away
Stars fill your eyes
Snow falls from the skies
