It happened so fast The blink of an eye I never intended to Go flying so high Nothing was serious Then it caught fire Tried to stay cool But the heat just got higher Trapped in a tinderbox Of rage and desire The friction was so intense Then we caught fire We were aflame Starshine was here to stay Then it faded away And it all went up in smoke Life was cherries flambe But that was so yesterday Then it all went up in smoke Now here am I Kicking the ashes Of a memory gone by Things got too serious Then they caught fire Now I've been burned I'm a bit wiser A place in the shade Is all I require Yet I'm still hypnotized When I see fire
"The sounds are all virtual synthesizers that exist in the Reason environment. Part of my research in getting those sounds involves going out and listening to a lot of different music to see what inspiration I can find. The other part is going through what are thousands of sounds to try to find a starting point, which I then modify to fit what I'm doing. At first, it was just a sound, a found sound; I didn't know what song it belonged to. Eventually, it was tacked on to this thing I was doing, and the whole thing said 'smoke' to me. It's one of the songs that I think will work well in a live context, because parts of it can be stretched out and manipulated."
