Opening Statement

APPEARS ON


Before I refuse to take any questions
I’ve got an opening statement
I’d like to keep to myself
Cause I’m open to the idea
My death may well defy
All of my logic and my imagination
I may never know this road I’m on
The here and now the gone
Coming home or running away

We were light and sound
Before a darker matter
Froze us into what
We are for now
Too late over in a minute
Losing a fight before I knew I was in it
Just kept me swinging til long after I knew that it was over

I may never know this road I’m on
The here and now the gone
Coming home or the running away
You’re gonna miss my laugh someday
Somewhere along the way
Somewhere along the way

We’re frozen light like
We’re frozen sound like
We’re seven billion different people
Out walking around
Going down that road feeling bad
Because that’s just what people do
Like every night is a Friday night
And everyday is a Friday night too

I may never know which road I’m on
The here and now the gone
The coming home or the running away
You’re gonna miss my laugh someday
Somewhere along the way
Somewhere along the way
