This was originally composed/ performed in 1997. It is one of the few compositions I made with Cakewalk 8 and was able to save. Prior to this I had used a portastudio 1. The tools were a fairly primitive drum machine, mic, original whammy pedal, CZ-101 synth and guitar. The fatal flaw in the original was that I chose to kick off the drum machine and edit it live while singing a capella - naturally I was out of tune with the subsequently added synth and guitar parts. Now, 23 years later I can nudge the vocals back into tune.

The subject matter was the recurring feelings of deja vu in momentary flashes of a scene I felt I had lived before. So the lyrics are about me grappling with this. This no longer happens to me though I think this music has some value, if no other reason than a page in the diary of my life as written in music.

Unreal - Transcends
Flash, Flash, Flash,

OH LIVING GOD!
play with the strands of time
feel the never space
the flesh of dreams
breathe with life
the Hands of dreams
rend the very fabric…
of swirling nonsense
you sit at the table
then, now
you did not
but still do

Picture, Picture, Picture,
The Dreams - They LIVE!
Flash, Flash, Flash,
They LIVE, They LIVE,
The Dreams are REAL
The Dreams are REAL
the Dreams are REAL
