about

A song about obsession, created during one of Todd's experimental recording sessions at Saratoga Park Studios in Fremont, CA.

lyrics

Bliss
(Downing)

Watching people walking hand in hand
Catches me off my guard
Those parts when I close my eyes
Is it a movement of fear, or something peculiar?
I don’t even know your name
This kind of bliss comes once in a lifetime
Don’t let me say the wrong thing

Watching films of others
Walking hand in hand
And all my expectations
Are turning into sand
Eyes like razors [pins and needles] cut me deep
And melt away [And let me tell you this...]
Clandestine attitudes
Won’t help me keep the wolf at bay
[Don’t put me out of my misery - this agony is bliss]

My picture of you, it’s so extreme
It’s black and white,
Good, bad, just a dream
It calls out to me night and day
But the image in my head won’t fade away
