Remake of the original recording using some of the original audio files from 2004 and combining these with real drums, bass and other tools in Reason. Song was later treated in Live using Waves NLS, REDD 51 and Slate Digital's VTM plugins.


What if I opened my heart and showed you everything
Everything inside...
What would you say if I told you everything
Everything in the back of my mind

Would you laugh at me?
Cry with me?
Get by with me?
Take a walk on the water
See the moon in my eyes
Come on, play with fire..

Your eyes used to look right thru me
I felt me fade from view..

Didn't your Momma once think I was no good for you?
Did you too, my love?
Wouldn't she lead you to apes with brains and telephones?
Would she do it again?
She would...

So stay with me
Come play with me
'Cause I'm the same old boy you used to know
Take a walk on the water
See the moon in my eyes
Come on, play with fire

Nothing comes from nothing
And nothing's all I receive/believe
I walk thru a world a strangers
No familiarity..
