lyrics

Fresh as any flower in its isolated ivory tower I feel
Squandering daylight hours safe inside the inner sanctum of my warm steel mouse wheel
Locked inside my box inside my microchip inside the great machine
West into the future I drift into the darkness with the day
But tomorrow I’ll be gone
As another silent stranger treads the warm steel wheel and quietly grinds himself away

And all I know of Life is melted snow
It’s such a waste behind my window
I know the sun is shining in the sky
For I am living in its shadow
And all my pain and all my fear
I know is locked away in here beside me
And all I have to do is step outside this life and walk into the sea.

See the Lady of Shalott’s got lots of melancholy on her mind
Floating in her boat she knows her days are done
Her flames are down to two flames
One flame
Leaving Life behind her she escapes she stows away She swiftly fades
West into the future she drifts into the darkness with the day
But her sorrow will live longer
As another silent stranger treads the warm steel wheel and quietly grinds herself away

And all I know of Life is melted snow
It’s such a waste behind my window
I know the sun is shining in the sky
For I am living in its shadow
And all my pain and all my fear
I know is locked away in here beside me
And all I have to do is step outside this life and walk into the sea.

See the Lady of Shallot’s got lots of melancholy on her mind.
