First post in ages, I've been busy with college work and transfer applications to Berklee College of Music so I can leave Fitchburg State and persue a real career. I have no clue which song this is in order, since I removed The Greatest Masquerade and The King's Crusade, I never was fond of those songs.

This is my most recent one, progressive rock tune in a 7/8 meter.

Running On Time

(Written November 6, 2005

By Mike R. Smale)

To run the race of destiny;

Upon the track of confusion.

All of the years rolling by

On a nonstop partition

Beside you.

What does it mean?

Have I been here before?

I already know where

I’m going.

The world on the screen,

Is that all my life?

I know it’s too late, but

I’m leaving.

What answers can I find

In these ruins of time.

Ending, beginning- they all look the same-

Consecutive images appearing again.

Each upon the wheel in the darkness

Of life.

A woman in satin, dressed for deceit;

Touches hearts with her red, lace glove.

Whispering lies through an innocent gaze,

Spreading the failures of love.

What do I see?

I see nothing but sky,

Endless and twisting on high.

What do I know?

Where I’m going.

What answers can I find

In these ruins of time.

Ending, beginning- they all look the same-

Consecutive images appearing again.

Each upon the wheel in the darkness

Of life.
