Lyrics
I came upon you early last week
Sitting there, broken with your heart on your sleeve
So obsolete, so incomplete
Everyone ’round you having such a good time
You wanted to join ’em if you could just cross that line
God knows that you have tried
But where is that fountain you’ve been dreaming of?
You’ve been so close so many times, but never quite enough
Old, bad habits keep bringing you down

Surely, the time is near when once again you can see clear
The gloom is broke, its spirit gone
A fine young human you’ve become
I can see it, can you see it?
That battle is staged most every night
The nightmares, fears, and dreadful sights
I hope it is just a passing phase
Just can’t seem to shake this daze
I can feel it, can you feel it now?

I came upon you in a dream in my sleep
Shining there beautiful, the moment so complete
You showed me the fountain I’ve been dreaming of
The world was ours finally, God knows we deserve it

Surely, the time is near when once again you can see clear
The gloom is broke, its spirit gone
A fine young human you’ve become
I can feel it, can you feel it now?
Everyone’s eyes are opened for the first time
How can they, how can they be so blind?
It’s been so long, it’s been so long
Since you’ve been gone, since you’ve been gone
Since I’ve been gone

Analysis: This is another song from the defunct “concept album” project. It is a song that is not finished, especially vocally, but one that I did feel needed to be included due to its sentiment and theme. The original recording was over seven minutes long, but I edited it down to four, eliminating long spans with just backing track.
