"Double Vision Quest" as written by and Murchy Snider....
Caught in the locked groove of this long season
These hours motions circle, still repeating

[Chorus]
The beat moves on itself
The beat moves on itself
Every day my love
Crazy crazy days are gone
When I come home
And we're finally alone

And I'm caught in your arms safe from a morning
No one walks out on the tightrope today my love

[Chorus]

We awoke at the edge of a summer
New days began to stretch their legs
And the tempo's changing the complacency
The needle finds the groove to free us tonight

We awoke on the edge of this winter
The ice melts off and flows in like a song
The record plays but the needles old
It lets the player take control

Move the speakers how they're told
To make us march for something more
Music is a sedative
And you put out what you put in

    General CommentI'm fairly certain that the line "and the tempo's changing the consistancy" should be "and the tempo's changing to compensate."

    General CommentOne of my favorites from the album.

    The opening riff is great, then the other instruments worm their way in, and combine up to the first chorus and it ends up so satisfying. then the verse comes back and works the best guitar of the entire album.

    it keeps going then a big rock out. then a really really good breakdown with the synth and the rhythmic off beat guitars and badass bass. after a good rock out a great breakdown puts you in a good place. and that's what this song does.

    and all the words are filling in the vocal space. it's all about the music, with little meaning behind them the focus is on the fucking bad ass song.

    this one really is the best on the album

    General Commenti love when he says,

    crazy crazy days are gone
    when i come home
    and we're finally alone

    i also love the fact he never repeats and we're finally alone he just says when i come home
    this song gave me the shivers the first time i heard it haha that's so lame, but true.
