    These always made me think.

    Pearl Jam- Sleight Of Hand

    Routine was the theme...He'd wake up..
    Wash and pour himself into uniform..
    Something he hadn't imagined being

    As the merging traffic passed...He found himself staring down at his own hands

    Not remembering the change...Not recalling the plan

    Was it?

    He was okay..But wondering...About wandering
    Was it age...By consequence..Or was he moved by sleight of hand?

    Mondays were made to fall...Lost on a road he knew by heart
    Its like a book he read in his sleep...Endlessly...

    Sometimes he hid in he radio..Watching others pull into their homes
    While he was drifting.....

    On a line...Of his own...off the line....On the side
    Bye the by....As dirt turned to sand
    As if moved by sleight of hand

    When he reached the shore of his...Clip on world
    He resurfaced to the norm

    Organized his few things...Coat and keys
    Any new realizations would have to wait

    Till he had more time...Oh more time....

    Time to dream..To himself...Waves goodbye to his own self..I'll see you on the other side

    Another man....Moved by sleight of hand

    Look at me in my fancy car, and my bank account

    Oh how I wish I could take it all down to my grave..how I'd save and save

    Man take a look again, the things you have collected

    Well in the end it all piles up so tall to one big nothing, one big nothing at all

    Dave Matthews Band "Seek Up"

    Here's to your thin red line....MMMMMM I'm stepping over!

    Pearl Jam has a line in the song "Corduroy" that is along the same lines as that dave matthews song. it goes like this: "I'll end up alone like I began"

    Ronnie James Dio probably has the best deap thought type of lyrics:

    From "Magica"

    "Welcome to sun-down
    Welcome to the dark
    Could be that evil has heros" -Turn to Stone

    "Beware of quiet voices
    Thunder comes from silence"-Ariel

    "No one gets to heaven
    Till they've lived a while in hell
    And even then it's rare
    That you'll be going there" -Otherworld

    From "Sacred Heart"

    "The old ones speak of winter
    The young ones praise the sun
    And time just slips away..." -Sacred Heart

    "Whenever you dream
    You're holding the key
    It opens the door
    To let you be free" - Sacred Heart

    "They were paper and fire
    Angel and liar
    The Devil of one another" - Rock n Rol Children

    From Last in Line

    "Well know for the first time
    If we're evil or divine
    We're the last in line" - The Last in Line

    And From Holy Diver

    "Look inside of yourself
    You might see someone you don't know
    Maybe it's just what you need
    Leting the river in you flow" - Caught in the Middle

    "Don't hide in doorways
    You may find the key
    That opens up your soul" - Don't talk to
    Strangers

    "She was a photograph
    Just ripped in half
    A smile inside a frown" - Invisible

    "When there's lightning
    You know it always brings me down
    Cause it's free and I see that it's me
    Who's lost and never found." - Rainbow in the Dark


    ------------------
    "Honey, arn't you gonna catch a cold dressed like that?" - Dave
    "We're not in the music business, we're in the business of making music." - Edward
    "Yeah, I saw a yard gnome once...it didn't scare me." - Space Ghost
