What does a scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me, into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly, because I can’t any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone’s sake the scanners do better. Because if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I do, then I’m cursed and cursed again. ... more

Track Name: Pier ft. Didjelirium
Pier
VERSE 1 :
I remember the first time i dreamt i was time traveling
Woke up in the middle of the night and found my cat scribbling
On a piece of paper, with a tail like a painter,
He looked in my eyes and i'm telling no lies but i saw what i saw : on his face the same fever
So i blinked back and i sat down next to him
I picked up what he drew and saw my own meaning in his drawing
And let me tell you at that moment i knew
Time-travel is one of dem things made just for two
So i told him we need to sort out the structure
The things that make ya stronger can also destruct ya
We don't wanna end up in flame though we might like it
This is a once in a lifetime time trip they don't sell in mass markets
Trust me this is alchemy, add a bit of chemistry,
We're working in our own lab so we no report to no ministry
But if i'm right then i'm sorry but we're gonna need your energy
Life is the main part…you got nine… can you spare one for me ?
CHORUS :
It takes one soul to fill up the tank of the machine that sends you away
And i got one goal : to fill up the blank left between now and today.
VERSE 2 :
And we did it, we stopped any decoy
Built a time machine with a dream and a plastic toy
We never seemed to be missing a piece of the equation
Pluses and minuses nicely skimmed off the emotion
Results blinking and starting to show up
I really want it to work cos i don't want to grow up
I know there was a time when humans didn't make me throw up
I just can't find the day where my happiness is holed up.
The past is where the future is for the choices we never made
Tell me when should i intervene first, change what has been said
I can't go clueless cos the lives are not mine
My cat helps, still, he only has nine…
