Lyrics:
Miles and miles of murky road,
in the cold,
yet they lead you far away,
from your head,
in flimsy dreams of exhaust,
you’re so lost,
what you want, you cannot say,
only weep.

Never-ending appetite,
in your deepest misery.

It would be nice to be other,
than the norm,
to have the skills to stand out,
in the crowd,
they never teach you perfection,
bring you down,
they stifle your identity,
keep you dull.

To be small is not a crime,
you’re extraordinary,
put away your rage and fear,
and be.

In your tiny universe,
so perverse,
you have broken your own rules,
and it hurts,
now it’s time to face yourself,
and be free,
what matters is in your heart,
don’t look back.

To be small is not a crime,
you’re extraordinary,
put away your rage and fear,
and be.

now it’s time to face yourself,
and be free,
what matters is in your heart,
don’t look back,
don’t look back.

A Vague Memory of Traveling at Night

Video, sound, words by Matt Frantz. Filmed in San Clemente, CA. © 2006.


I have a vague memory of traveling at night. I was searching for place that I had been before, but I couldn’t remember why. There was a mist that surrounded the lights. The glow drifted towards the sky, until gravity would softly pull it beneath the ground. I had lost all sense of time, I had lost all sense of time. I have a vague memory of a dream. My eyes were closed and my body was motionless.
