"The Secret Ocean" as written by and Andrew Rieger....
The secret ocean in its' coast spilled out into the world,
And it made me think of how you floated away,
to another distant world, embracing the unknown;
and I wonder what you're doing there today.
'Cause I'm always thinking of you,
Your invisible rays sliced me in two.
You crush me every day,
make me change my shape:
I can be anything you want me to.

Driftin' alone,
Through golden doorways,
You try to drop your head,
But the ceiling sinks upon you,
and lifts you up into a place where you can be
anything you want to

An old dead branch,
a big red ant,
a singing clown.

It might be impossible to reach into the sky,
And send you out a greeting
on the telepathic line.
Another selfless scream,
for entering your dream,
Across the secret ocean
in the broad, unending time.

I'm always thinking of you,
Your invisible rays slice me in two.
You crush me every day,
make me change my shape
I could be anything you want me to,
Oh, I could be anything you want me to.
Oh, I could be anything you want me to.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure he says 'slices me in two', not 'strikes.'
