Album
Name of Song: A long long time ago

Hard to put my finger on,
This urge within my mind,
But looking at it closely now,
It keeps us all in line.

It doesn’t have any feelings,
It doesn’t have any life,
It feeds off what I give to it,
It lives because of spite.

It took over my own being,
A long long time ago,
It makes me feel like doing things
that keep the status quo.

Chorus
It hides in made up pleasure,
From fake invented pain,
An intention to solidify you,
Again and again and again.
There are those who keep on searching
for this blend of sex and love,
But waves of sex then pain take hold
and you think it’s from above.

Bridge
Automatic feelings,
Confusing to define,
Wondering what the difference is
between  oneself and mind.
A long term basic problem,
Who and what you are,
Ignore the lot and be yourself,
Be present, then future far.

Leave a little darkness,
To remember what you’ve seen,
Then light it up when you are sure
you know where you have been.

So easy forgetting lifetimes,
It’s something we all do,
Remembering things from your own past,
Brings sanity back to you.
