about

A friend of mine told me about a book he read that said our universe was a holograph. He believed that if we focused our energy hard enough, we could break through the constraints of our physical world and rejoin our true existence outside the holograph, thereby transcending time and space. It seemed like a neat idea.

I had been thinking a lot about God and the supernatural at the time, and how limited our senses are, compared to what actually exists in the universe. Then I wrote this song.

lyrics

Take my body out from the equation
So there isn't any doubt that I am God and
Turn me upside down and see what drains right out

Caught up in the illusion, caught up in your dream
Touch the ground coz you found out that the ground was there
For you to touch

You can not turn it off so fast
You can not find a way to make it last

Let the world pass by
You know it's gonna keep on spinning
And he who sets the rules decides on who is winning

The ants, they march along,
And we're just as real as them
But the fattest of queens can not fathom the truth
The signs are all there but she has no proof

You can not turn it off so fast
You can not find a way to make it last
