Trust me I've been there before, but I've never been here til now...

It will always go unsaid, and I don't want to see you shake your head
Or mutter under your breath things you should've said
Let's go to the places we don't know
And leave all this confusion behind
[Behind] your eyelids lie blueprints of the pyramids
Examine them well, while you are out of your cell.

I met an old man who accepts that the further in you go the bigger it gets
He lets the river call his name
[His name] is no matter but the alien voice of this modern mad-hatter
He wore his hat well.
Eloquently defining time, he fearlessly shared his mind
The truth is all about how nature had to take him out.

How can I ever clear my head by thinking of things I should have said
When my thoughts were right and not misled
Into the rabbit hole with a flickering light of self control
I need to shed some light to see my goal
To be the fire inside of me
I only want to be amused by what I see
Is the form of an old man being born
Out of our world, and into a new one.

I'm all mixed up but I'm not confused
By the way I see, by the way I'm used
So help me if you can cause I'm not the best I am
So stop staring at your feet
Because this mountain has no peak.

I've been here, I've been here before
But I've never been here til now.

Finally I've found a page that somehow keeps my mind engaged
And releases the sound of the alpha wave
[Wave] to me and I'll find you across the sea
To see what we can be
[Believe] Leave with me, eternity's where we're free
Out of this time game,
Time frame, ear plane, no one will ever be the same
Trust me I've been there before but I've never been here til now.
