about

this song is loosely inspired by "the three stigmata of palmer eldritch" in combination with pkd's obsession with music and record collecting.

lyrics

i've heard time is like a record
well, i've got lots of records
time cuts a path in every record
a groove for every life

our songs are given to the ether
but the needle can go astray
where it ends up is not a place
it lands on some other life

and God hears it slipping
the record of our lives
it's happening all the time
keeps skipping until we die

the metal that we were made of
the plastic eyeball sockets
they rot in the bottom
and they are forgotten
(forever)

and there's nothing after
no more needle asking why
no more thoughts of dying
no spying hidden eyes

and God hears it slipping
the record of our lives
it's happening all the time
keeps skipping until we die
