... lost in the manifold

Lost in the manifold of where I could be.
I feel like I'm growing old
Without being any closer to being free.
Lost in the manifold between the future and the past.
Right now is infinite
And that's a little bit too much for me to grasp.

When I'm gone and I leave all things behind
I'll be searching that manifold
Finding all there is for me to find.

Lost in the manifold of where you're trying to be.
I suggest before you're old
Find all that the manifold can be.
We're all lost in the manifold, but it's not so bad.
You just can't dwell upon
Things that you can do or what you had.

When I'm gone and I leave all things behind
I'll be searching that manifold
Finding all there is for me to find.
