about

Music originally composed for the Prime Numbers song "Overstated Faculty" (1980).

lyrics

Echoes of the day fill my dreams with anxious melodies
Sirens wail in a minor key.
I’m trapped in a crowd, and lonely.
No one hears me.

Pushing through the bodies I reach a clearing
Open space and a black frontier.
I turn around and a light snaps on me
As people stare, I have this feeling.

If you pound the floor in an airless room,
Does it make a sound? Can you see the humor?
The key to the door is right in your hand
You’re where you chose to be:
In someone else’s fantasy.

I’m not ready for auditions or confession, so I’d like to go.
Everybody seems to think I want a part in the show.
There were times when I knew what dreams are for.
Once I made a good talker, but not anymore.

When will I sound from the silence that contains me?
Would you hear me? Could you speak to me?
Voices over voices overlapping in a harmony,
Sirens wailing like they knew what would become of me.

If you pound the floor in an airless room,
Does it make a sound? Can you see the humor?
The key to the door is right in your hand
You’re where you chose to be:
In someone else’s fantasy.
