"The Sky Moves Sideways (Alternate Version)" as written by Steven John Wilson and James Weldon Newton Jr.....
We lost the skyline
We stepped right off the map
Drifted in to blank space
And let the clocks relapse

We laughed the rain down
Slow burn on the lawn
Ghosts across the lawn
Swallowed up the storm

Sometimes I feel like a fist
Sometimes I am the color of air
Sometimes it's only afterwards
I find that I'm not there

In the dream dusk
We walked beside the lake
We watched the sky move sideways
And heard the evening break

Sometimes I feel like a fist
Sometimes I am the color of air
Sometimes it's only afterwards
I find that I'm not there

    General CommentLove Steven's vocals on this one: He directly takes me into those lyrics.

    But I think that 'raking' is 'making' as you hear the M clearly, and 'thunder' should be 'sunder', as he impossibly sings 'thunder'.

    But, that's just my hunble opinion.
