You can keep breathing, I only fall when you are near me
Incomplete, I only talk when you can hear me, Keep dreaming
can't wake up until I'm sleeping, Lost on me, Close to something I'll never be

Close to something I'll never be

If I just stay here, close my eyes can you still see me ?
Obsolete, very nearly something to see
Still see me, I can't wake up for sleeping
Incomplete, very nearly something to be

Very nearly something to be

You can keep trying, drown in sleep to be flying
See for Miles, something that I wanted to be
I can't wake this dream, prototype ends up has been
Incomplete, the consequence of something to be

    General Comment"The symbol 'X' is one of the most abused symbols in 20th-century culture. "'X' is a variable in mathematics," he notes, "meaning that it's a substitute for whatever you like. So there's that instant ambiguity. And when we were in America, someone said that it could be a cross. Then someone else said it was a kiss. Plus there's Generation X, and Malcolm X, and on goes the list..."

    General CommentThere's a bit missing after the second verse:

    Still see me?
    There's a punishment needed
    Obsolete
    Very nearly something to be

    General CommentThis album's song titles remind me of the video game series "Mega Man" and "Mega Man X".

    "Becoming X" - "X"
    "Walking Zero" - "Zero"
    "Roll on" - "Roll"
