lyrics

144 BPM | SKY'S EYES

INTRO:

I open my eyes,
And feel so light,
Somehow not surprised,
All appearing so bright.

Chorus :

I'm as good as dead,
As I was once alive,
Perhaps slightly ahead,
My whole mind as revived.

I'm as good as dead,
As I would by sunrise,
Even, better instead,
Is see now from the sky's eyes

Verse:

1'01'': I see the world passing by
Underneath my eyes
I'm the sky, and to me,
Gravity laws no longer applies

Flying by some people on the ground,
Never felt more alive,
Waving greetings all around
None of them seems to reply

I'm flying by a river,
It's such a lovely feeling,
Once right over,
I saw my body missing
But couldn't believe it,
I'd rather though instead,
A dreaming lonely spirit,
But I guess -- I'm dead
No regrets right here,
I don't feel my fear,
I'm aware that I'm dead,
And I'm happy I am,
Cause life had me misled
In believing,
Almost kneeling,
3'04''
For anything,
To have any meaning.

Chorus :
I'm as good as dead,
As I was once alive,
Perhaps slightly ahead,
My whole mind as revived.

I'm as good as dead,
As I would by sunrise,
Even, better instead,
Is see now from the sky's eyes

Now I'm the sky and I'm free
From it's eyes, from it's lies,
From the sides, from the glides.

I'm as good as dead,
As I was once alive,
Perhaps slightly ahead,
My whole mind as revived.

I'm as good as dead,
As I would by sunrise,
Even, better instead,
Is see now from the sky's eyes
