Real Thought Series: Instrumental 

There have been times 

When all I had was a song to carry me

Repeating and repeating, holding to those minutes of euphoria 

Guitar solos that sent electricity through me

Relieving me of the chaos around me at the time

Silencing the echo of feeling alone 

I wanted my MTV

I wanted to be a guitar slinger 

I discovered Yngwie in a guitar magazine 

His blazing speed took my mind places I had never known

I would not have ever imagined that an instrumental 

Would see me through my darkest nights 

Laying back on the couch

My arm over my face

I disappeared within an instrumental
