Clouds of another life Wash across the sunlight Changing shape as they go by Thought I saw your face there But like them You just disappear Disappear into empty sky Quietly And so removed from reason Hey Have you ever had to reason? Hey The eagle comes and goes To somewhere much higher When the silence grows Can you hear it, sniper? Visions and memories Where someone once laid flowers For the past and things to come Thought you were gone But I can feel you So I Turn around Turn around yes, and there you are Here again Can you give it some meaning? Hey Ask again, but you say nothing Hey Motion with no sound Ice inside the fire The stillness in the storm Silence hides the sniper Eagles come and go To someplace much higher And when the silence grows Can you hear it, sniper? What goes through your sniper’s mind?

Part of this song was allegedly used in alternate opening credits for Ghost In The Shell: S.A.C. 2nd Gig, and I never knew about this until I got to see it on YouTube:
Years ago before I gave up on making or uploading videos to YouTube and right before YouTube deleted my channel without warning, I started working on my biggest video project ever, but I stopped at the very early stages.
Here is the only video from that never completed project that I barely got to start so it is super incomplete and lacks 90-something % of the content and editing:
