Truly don't remember the origin of this song. Pretty sure it was a Bat Cave NC song as well, maybe prophetic since I was shortly after working at Jittery Joes in Athens surround by hot and cold coffee. Thinking is was more of random name for a song supposed to disguise the morose sentiments of the song. Later performed with my full band I turned into a whole different beast-this version is a favorite for me though because of Thomas Kay's hauntingly melodic solo at the end.

Lyrics

Lately I've been thinking of dying
turning over pages in my life
Reflection only brings on heartache
When I can't figure out what's just not right
A loss of direction a need for more affection did paradise ever have a name
I dreamed all night of putting out my sight cause the haunting figures that creep around my brain
Can I remember
are you for sure
did I knock down one of Gods or Satans doors
I look right through it and I always see
Still I end up where I'm not supposed to be
Still I end up where Im not supposed to be

Is there an answered question
Swimming in your head
you still ask it any way
Cause you need proof instead
The sun's still shining but it rains all day
If we really knew do you really think we'd stay
Can I remember
Are you for sure
Did I knock down one of God's or Satans doors
I look right through it and I always see
still I end up where I'm not supposed to be
yeah I end up where Im not supposed to be
My mind never woke u to see the things around just bc you feel you think you know
Well I can tell you stories that will pain your heart with more ease than this road of fire that just won't let me go

Can I remember
Are you for sure
Did I knock down one of God's or Satans doors
I look right through it and I always see
still I end up where I'm not supposed to be
yeah I end up where Im not supposed to be
yeah I end up where Im not supposed to be
I always end up where Im not supposed to be...
