Last week I faced a frustrating situation, as one airline delay after another prevented me from reaching my destination, ultimately forcing me to miss my uncle’s funeral. This experience was similar to a genre of dream that I frequently have in which I am attempting to get somewhere, but I keep getting sidetracked, waylaid, or otherwise distracted. It is a genre of dream that I frequently think of as “the maze”. Although there are frequently no physical barriers, navigating these dreams elicits the type of frustration and resignation that one feels when they cannot find their way.

This song received less attention than I might have hoped because I am nursing a head-cold that makes it rather unpleasant to sing. These things happen from time to time on this site. Needless to say, next week’s 200 song landmark will put me in an ambitious mood whether or not my cold persists. See you then!


Down on the earth so far away
There's a place I'm going
And I can't be late

I'm caught
Like a dream I cannot find
The exit's hidden
And I fall behind

Down on the ground so far away
People walking
And it seems so strange

I'm caught
On a line cannot break
Dragging my bones
Through a furious maze
