"The Wilhelm Scream" as written by and James Blake Litherland....
I don't know about my dreams
I don't know about my dreamin anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Might as well fall in

I don't know about my love
I don't know about my lovin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Might as well fall in

I don't know about my dreams
I don't know about my dreamin anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Fallin'

I don't know about my love
I don't know about my lovin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm lovin, fallin', lovin', lovin'
Might as well love you

I don't know about my love
I don't know about my lovin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm turnin', turnin', turnin', turnin',
Might as well turn in

I don't know about my dreams
I don't know about my dreamin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Might as well fall in

I don't know about my love
I don't know about my lovin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Might as well fall in

I don't know about my dreams
I don't know about my dreamin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Fallin'

I don't know about my love
I don't know about my lovin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm lovin', lovin', lovin', lovin'
Might as well love you

I don't know about my dreams
I don't know about my dreamin' anymore
All that I know is
I'm fallin', fallin', fallin', fallin'
Might as well fall in

    General CommentFYI, this song is a re-imagining of "Where to Turn" by James Litherland, James Blake's father. I feel that this version is an update of that song for the 21st century, more isolated and alone and fractured, it sounds like the last straw in a guy's constant disappointment in love and life, things getting harder and harder and never being rewarded, just being heartbroken and kicked around time after time until he's eventually on the edge of giving up completely. I think he's expressing this to a woman, maybe a stranger, at least somebody who's willing to care and listen. Maybe he's settling. It's extremely emotionally dense for something so minimal.

    To retort to MrFog (I read that as MrFrog which is way more awesome), the reiteration of those few lines and sentiments in such a minimal background sets up an amazing atmosphere for actually rather an unpretentious message, one that if anything is really genuine and primal. This isn't prog rock, it's one guy and his keyboard putting his emotions on the line.
