It’s either ether or the other
My mind is back to front
Absentees absent
I slip the cup
I’m taking a sip from the cup that slips into ether

It’s either ether or the other
I press my window
To the glass
The glass turns to gas
I breathe out ether
A glass of ether
The ether is a thief
It’s stolen my belief

Slip through the ether
We both slip through the ether
Slipstreams of memory slipping away
It’s ether

Slip through the ether
Sip the ether
Sip the ether
Slipstreams of memories slipping away
Slipstreams of memories slipping away
Memories of it’s…slipping away
Into ether
Into ether

I’ve changed my mind
That’s what it’s there for
I’ve changed my mind
That’s what it’s there for
For the ether
For the ether
For the ether

I’m going upstairs now to turn my mind off
I’m going upstairs now to turn my mind off
To turn my mind off
To turn my mind off
To turn my mind off
To turn my mind off
