Lyrics;


Sobriety is just a waste of my mind,

And ecstasy is just a waste of my time,

Reality is burns too bright for my eyes,

So I seek my redemption in the next dimension,


Oh oh,

I'm burning up,

On re-entry,


Too unknown to sooth your soul,

Maybe you'll find holes,

Maybe you'll feel whole,

Soon the world feels alive,

The little patterns they can drive,

Feel spiritual but I don't feel spirits,

Cos I'm a witness,

Not filled with sickness,

And I'll free my soul remove the walls,

Until then it's unfinished,

Higher levels higher lives higher loves,

Wider levels wider lives wider loves,


The liberation when no one's watching,

Self's an idea that they're creating,

Past is future,

Instinct and nature,

Gut reaction,

Laws of attraction,


Oh come and reach the surface,


Pulling out the artificial teeth,

Come and reach the surface your too far beneath,

In the end it all depends on your belief,

It's your weight in gold,

You'll never be told,
