Well I spent the night in heaven
I wanted to figure it out for myself
I spin around the fortress
You never know the currency that we all run on
We run on
We run on
You once told me
You keep a billion frequencies on your person
End the night with channel four
You don't see me looking you up when I'm here
We live fast cuz time won't last
See me freezing like the bum I am
From where you start there's endless information drilled into your eyes
Well, I don't need protection
One life begins, another dies
Bad timing
I won't last
Man, that's the facts
It is a feeling that will never pass
And you know you could be taking us far
When I speak to you again through the stages of pleasure
Well, I don't have my own face
So c'mon and be replaced
There's a future that's calling
But I don't see it coming
No, I don't have my own face
So c'mon and be replaced
There's a future that's calling
But I don't see it coming
No, I don't see it coming
No, I don't see it coming
No, I don't see it coming

    General CommentWell I spent the night in heaven
    I wanted to figure it out for myself
    I spin around the fortress
    You never know the currency that we all run on
    We run on
    We run on
    You once told me
    You keep a billion frequencies on your person
    End the night with channel four
    You don’t see me looking you up when I’m here
    We live fast cuz time won’t last
    See me freezing like the bum I am
    From where you start there’s endless information drilled into your eyes
    Well, I don’t need protection
    One life begins, another dies
    Bad timing
    I won’t last
    Man, that’s the facts
    I it a feeling that will never pass
    And you know you could be taking us far
    When I speak to you again through the stages of pleasure
    Well, I don’t have my own face

    But I don’t see it coming
    No, I don’t see it coming
    No, I don’t see it coming
    No, I don’t see it coming


    those are the correct lyrics...

    this is a song of a man who has seen heaven through the astral plane and he wants the pure love and peace to come to this physical plane

    General CommentFor me this song follows the general gist of the album - John's interaction with God. Another 10/10 for John though.

    General Comment@pointless triangle

    i agree. if you don't know what the lyrics are for sure.. why wouldn't you just wait for someone who bought the physical album and has the booklet to post them?

    anyway,
    this whole album blows my mind. it's incredible.

    here, the album's main "character" or whatever you'd like to call it, is talking to god i think.
    also, a lot of it is a reflection about life. not having his own face, being replaced, life going by fast, "one life begins another dies," all those lyrics say similar things. about how when you compare your tiny time on this earth to the eternal time of the universe, you sometimes think about how insignificant your life is.

    General Commentat first sorry for my english :P

    Well I spent the night in Heaven;
    I wanted to figure it out by myself — i wanted to know what the sense of living is

    I spin around a fortress, - i didn't figured it out
    You never know the currency that we all run on — coz noone knows why does he live and what for

    We run on, we run, on

    You once told me, you keep a billion frequencies, On your person — many people converted to God

    In the nihgt on chanel four, you don't see me looking you up,
    When im here — but when i'm turning to him, he doesn't see me

    We live fast, coz time won’t last
    oh, see me frezzing, like the bum I am — we do many things and we're confident that they make sense, but i see myself doing nothing, stuck in nonsense

    From where you start, this endles information drilled,
    Into your life — we live with thinking about our death

    I dont need protection, one life begins another dies, bad timing — i don't need protection from the death, we shouldn't count time from the moment of our birth till the death coz we don't know what else is after it, we don't need to hurry, i think he believes that there must be something after life but we will figured it out after our death

    I won’t last, man that's a fact — i agree with the fact that i'll die
    oh, it is a feeling that will never pass — we live with thinking bout death and this feeling won't pass

    And you know you could be taking us far — God you know that you could cut our suffering and show us what life is all about - take us on a higher state of consciousness

    When I speak to you again, through the stages of pleasure — the moment of my death would be a pleasure

    Well I don't have my own faith
    So come on and be replaced
    there’s a future that’s coming
    But I don’t see it coming" - i don't have my own faith, my own view on the subject of sense of living so i would like to replace my life for what's after, i can't wait

    That's how i see it.

    My InterpretationLive for the moment, not for the future, nor the past.

    "Now I dont have my own fate. So come on and be replaced
    There's a future that's coming, but I don't see it coming"

    "I wont last, man that's a fact
    oh, it is a feeling that will never pass"

    "We live fast, because time wont last
    oh, see me frezzing, like the bum I am

    From where you start, this endles information drained,
    Into your life
    I dont need protection, when life begins I'm not
    Obliged by timing"

    Forgiveness and acceptance - Forgiving ones time-reliant mind, Mind is a great tool, but so destructive in nature.
    "And you know you could be taking us far
    When I speak to you again, through the stages of closure"

    Not identifying with form, embrace impermanence
    "Well I don't have my own face
    So come on and be replaced"
