How does the motion make me last
I shuffle forward and then back
I can be questioning my thoughts
But not looking for what I lack

What is it that has my mind so hypnotized
When shapes are for looking at
And their colors create my mood
I'm a vessel between two places I've never been

To seek a further or former design
Creation as a pathogen
What's more than subtle in these lines
I know you're looking forward to them

What is it that has my mind so hypnotized
Evolving on a thought that you've half realized
Life is real only when I am (well, I am) - I am surprised
That shapes are for looking at
And their colors create my mood
I'm a vessel between two places I've never been

    General Comment"Life is real only when I am"
    Here, he's saying 'Life is real only then, when "I am"'

    And I'm not exactly sure what 'I'm a vessel between two places I've never been' means, but I absolutely love that line!
