"Lost Perfection A) Coulrophobia" as written by Thomas Giles Rogers Jr., Paul Andrew Waggoner, Mark Edward Castillo, Nicholas Shawn Fletcher and Jason Schofield King....
These hours seem like years.
I've been starting at this wall,
Wondering when it's going to take all of our lives.
I'm just glad we have jokes.

My eyes are slowly closing.
Boredom is causing this loss of interest.
When will I awake?
(My eyes are slowly closing)
Boredom is causing this loss of interest.
When will I awake? Asleep...

This party of four includes three grown adults and myself.
The first adult is shy and wise enough,
To keep the second one away from conversation.
They're on a mission.
Gender is not recognized.
The third adult is a male and talks too much.

The stench of shit is in the air.
The room storms with laughter.
Four turns to a hundred and the noise is unbearable.
"It's time, you are in hell, this place will kill itself soon!"

I cry, and the hands surround me.
Born into a hell, never wake to this.
I cry, and the hands surround me.
Born into a hell, never wake to this.

I have experienced nothing,
Yet I fell the only one who has not done harm.
If only I could understand how to change things.

I can't fucking think.
The noise is unbearable.
I can't fucking think.
The noise is unbearable.
The noise stops.

    Song MeaningI'm not the first person to realize this, not even close, but I'm posting this here just for all the people who are just getting into BTBAM and don't know. So they won't have to jump around the internet collecting info like I had to.

    This song is introducing a character called Prospect #2. He is a protagonist that is on a mission to save his world from destruction he had caused. His "mission" is to go back in time and plant microorganisms. I'm not sure how that exactly was supposed to work, but either way he failed his mission. When he returns to his time, his is destroyed, or it might be totally non-existent, depending on your interpretation. This is all confirmed in the EP: "The Parallax: The Hypersleep Dialouges" and more specifically in the WRITTEN lyrics for "Lunar Wilderness."

    I think that maybe, Tommy started thinking of this story while touring and being bored in the tour van.

    General CommentWe used to always rent cargo vans when we toured… and that’s what the first and last sections of this song refer too. We would just sit in the back (no windows) and be bored out of our minds thinking about who knows what. This song is about a dream involving a baby born on the last day of the earth.
