about

This song is a remake of a track from my 2010 "Fading Purple Sky" album, which can be found on my bandcamp site. Imagine "waking up" one morning and everything you ever knew being gone. -- NF

lyrics

I woke up some time ago
I don't remember where I was
or what I did or if I did anything

I look left I look right
I look up and I look down
I look forward and I see nothing

I'm still here but everything else is not
I'm wondering if I've reached the other side
Did I die or did everyone else?
'Cause everything else is gone and vanished

Everything around me is one color
but which one I do not know
is it white is it black is it gray?

I don't see water I don't see land
I don't see air I don't see space
What did I do to lose everything?

I'm still here but everything else is not
I'm wondering if I've reached the other side
Did I die or did everyone else?
'Cause everything else is gone and vanished

Sometime last night something must've happened
but my memory is all gone
like a hard drive that's been erased by tech support

Now I'm out here confused and lost
I can't hear or see or smell
but I guess it's what happens at the end of time

I'm still here but everything else is not
This must be the other side
I mean, did I die or did everyone else?
'Cause everything else is gone and vanished
