01. Nil Recurring

Music by Porcupine Tree
[Instrumental]


02. Normal

Music & lyrics by Steven Wilson
Here is my car, my phone and my TV
I've got it all but you can see through me

But am I here?
It's kind of hard to tell
I do a good impression of myself
But what's normal now anyhow?

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way they wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way they wish away each day

Prescription drugs they help me through the day
And that restraining order keeps me well at bay
But what's normal now anyway?

Sullen and bored the kids stay
And in this way they wish away each day
Stoned in the mall the kids play
And in this way they wish away each day

Wish I was old and a little sentimental
You gotta see the waves, not the wine bottle


03. Cheating the Polygraph

Music by Gavin Harrison / Steven Wilson
Lyrics by Steven Wilson
Lying through my teeth again
I've been bad again, black lies
Skirting round the truth again
To escape the look in your eyes

Cover up the facts again
With the money men, disguise
Losing my integrity
Well, it's lost to me, I don't mind

Feel my soul going
Feel my soul colder

Blackening my soul again
With another lie, it's my style
Burying my face again
God I'm so ashamed, this time

Feel my soul going
Feel my soul colder


04. What Happens Now?

Music by Porcupine Tree
Lyrics by Steven Wilson
So I got all these things, but so what?
In the end you can't take them with you
You think you can save my soul? Well OK...
Tell me, with all your conviction
What happens now?

Well I could be boarding an aircraft
With a bomb concealed in somebody's briefcase
And my body will spread through the heavens, across the sky
And my ashes will fall through the cloudburst
What happens now?
What happens now?
