I remember a boy
Ventured far from here
Out of glass and into reflections
Shadows and dim recollections

Monsters in synapses
Bridges that collapse
Doors that open an shut
Without his hand to touch them

Looking back through dusty mirror
Saw the life I always feared
No winning and no losing.
Only striving and fighting.
The basic elements of surviving

And incandescents light the way
To eternal tunnels that are giving way
To see it or to ignore it
To divide and never explore it
A reaching hand off a cliff
A meaningless stroked guitar riff
A pulsing sound from the underground
A gravity to pull you down

And a light above to cause to look up
An overflowing closed cup
A confusing circumstance of beauty and redemption
The unexplored fields within this retention

A way out or a way in?
Soft is coming, let me in.
A way out or a way in?
Soft is coming, let me in.

{About: The lyrics were written in a somewhat stream-of-consciousness style, but I think they still retain strong meaning, and certainly emotion and feeling.)
