I stare into eternity
always one step ahead of me
I touch its wake every single day
but it slips from my grip and away

when what was given is gone
a one-way road to oblivion
and as I fight for just one more breath
I awake to the reality of death

you wouldn't ever want to try
see through my eyes
you'd break like a child inside
if you ever realized
through a mirror of time
I see your reflection
in the image that is me

I won't be around for too long
I too will see oblivion
and as I struggle to hang on
my life will fade until I'm gone

It's my secret number
and everybody wins this one
it's not as if time is on my side
we all drown in the same tide

you wouldn't ever want to try
see through my eyes
you'd break like a child inside
if you ever realized
on an everlasting sea
the tide of evolution goes on
for eternity

    General CommentThe voice sampled at the start of this song is of Joanna Pacula, as the Russian scientist Nadia Vinogradiya in the 1999 film Virus. Maybe the song was inspired by the film.
