Just a small thing that sneaked out the door while I was working on something bigger.

I'm not the beginning
I hope I'm not the end
Guess I'll be the middle
Safely buried in the sand.

But I'm really just the monster
Who recently lost his claws
Still chewing on my feet
Remind me, by whose laws?

Did you hear the jester's Laughter
In the throneroom of all your Hells
When you noticed that both his eyes
Once belonged to somebody else?

Maybe you are the monster
But what does that make of me?
Am I your prince of emptiness
Lifted high for all too see?

I don't know what it is, I really like your stuff though.

I was a little disapointed that there was no way-cool guitar solo like in your political song.
It was nice without - no interuptions lol.
Like a solo would've made me think too hard and spoiled the mood.

I do dig your solo's though.

Thankx for sharin'

Ken: Thanks. I was thinking about a solo but I'd need an E-bow for that. I need an E-bow for many things actually. I think I heared one calling my name. Soon. Near future and all.

Dneck: Thanks, and 'yes, kinda'. I played the main theme (the synthy-piano under the vocals) in reverse for the final verse and outro, and copied this reversedly-played thing to the intro. I then reversed the sound with software so you've got a reversed reversed sound, or the the normal theme but with the reversed 'tone'.
