Gently, my mind escapes into the relaxing
World of pleasure, a pleasure that'll take
My mind off the realities of my life,
My past life... Life as I know it now.

And whatever may come, it slowly
Disappears to somewhere in the back
Of my mind. It will remain there,
Until I wish to retrieve it.

Yes, I will stay here for a while,
For I need the break. A break from the
Pressures of life, and everything
That lays in the palm of life's hands... Life's hands.

This moment's incredible. It's out of
This world. Too bad I must always leave it...
... That's life.
... That's life.
... That's life.
... That's life.

... Shift!
... Shift!
... Shift!
... Shift!
... Shift!
