So here we go and here it is again
The present time is so mysterious
I’m facing south, from northern hemisphere
The southern cross for now has disappeared

I place it inside my brain
And shield it with everything
I see it come into you
You paint dark shades of blue

So here I go just me and my old mind
At times removed up coming up inside
What present sends is so mysterious
It’s mine to fight come spirit come defend
