I don't mean to dwell
But I can't help myself
When I feel the vibe
And taste a memory
Of a time in life
When years seemed to stand still

I close my eyes
And sink within myself
Relive the gift of precious memories
In need of a fix called innocence

When did it begin?
The change to come was undetectable
The open wounds expose the importance of
Our innocence
A high that can never be bought or sold

[Chorus:]
Symbolic acts - so vivid
Yet at the same time
Were invisible

[Solo: Schuldiner / Solo: Koelble]

Savor what you feel and what you see
Things that may not seem important now
But may be tomorrow

Do you remember when
Things seemed so eternal?
Heroes were so real...
Their magic frozen in time
The only way to learn
Is be aware and hold on tight

I close my eyes
And sink within myself
Relive the gift of precious memories
In need of a fix called innocence

When did it begin?
The change to come was undetectable
The open wounds expose the importance of
Our innocence
A high that can never be bought or sold

[Repeat chorus]

    The fact that dear chuck saw too much... Knew too much and there for longed to unknow... Yearned to go back to the blissful beginning to further appreciate the innocence that cannot be taught but experience.
