Controlled, consumed
Thoughts unattached
Each one a failed synapses detached from fact
One positive, one negative
Desperate, holding on to healthy images
Remember witness, wattness, matters, we’re not gonna make it
Provoking everyone but no one gives a…
Half laugh, half sigh
Half-sad, half-smile
Losing ability to recall his half-life
Burn from the stove
Keys locked inside
Dazed as impending anger turns up in reprise
Remember green light, keeper, easy and eyes on the road ahead
Provoking everyone with all the words he said
I won’t speak of all that would have been
Gained, lost, spent
But I won’t think of all that could have been
Controlled, consumed
Thoughts unattached
Outburst, these images are melding in my head
Remember Franken, Milkweg, Lintfabrik
The weirdest we have seen
Fires and blown-out tires
Perfect tragedy
I won’t think of all that should have been
Waste, lost, spent
But I won’t think of all that could have been
Goodbye old friend I won’t speak of all that could have been

    General CommentLike the rest of this album, it is about Derrick. This seems to be his final farewell to him(especially because it is the last song on the album before he has one about his girly).

    There is obviously some guilt in Joey and he is trying to dwell on the good of the past and not the missed of the future to make his mourning make sense...."Remember Franken....Fires and blown-out tires, Perfect tragedy" that sequence sums it up I think. Celebration of the good times as opposed to being upset about the future they lost.

    General CommentI think Milkweg should be Melkweg (long time Amsterdam shows' place) and Lintfabriek, same in Belgium. Maybe good (and weird) things happened between the two of them there. *sigh* Rest in peace, Derrick.
