Is It Real?

length: 4:40 minutes
disk: Mini-Album "Ask DNA"
music by: Yoko Kanno
vocals: Scott Matthew
musicians: Yoko Kanno
info: Part of the soundtrack for "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." No information as to it's role in the movie. It's amazing how many songs there are on the CB soundtrack that deal with people's feelings of separation from the real world. I mean, it fits beautifully with the themes offered by CB, but sometimes you come away from a Cowboy Bebop songs with tears in your eyes. And yes, I do love this song, just like most of the other tracks on the movie soundtracks. It's just that it hurts. (in a good way)
sessions: Knockin' On Heaven's Door
lyrics: by Tim Jensen -

Figurines that fall like leaves then disappear, keep calling
Is it real? Is it real?
Dark machines that wheeze and breathe then mock the air, appalling
What is real? What is real?
This world can really be too much
I can't take another day
I guess that I've just had enough
My mind's slipping far away
I'm falling in and out of touch
Could someone please explain?

Set my mind for open sky, but couldn't fly, so sadly
What am I? What am I?
Sullen eyes shed teardrop lies then criticize, now laughing
What is real? What is real?
It's really all become too much
I'm not sure what I should feel
I guess I've finally had enough
I don't know if this is real
I'm crashing in and out of touch
Can anyone explain?
