Lyrics (By Google Search)

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?

Songwriters: Tim Jensen / 菅野 よう子”

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:

Dreams

Ghost In The Shell And My Brothers KD And TD’s Automobile Search

File:Tatikoma B2.jpg
Source: Wikipedia

I had several dreams last night that I remembered but I got awakened from my first dream by my brothers KD and TD talking loudly on the phone with our dad about their search for a new automobile, this disturbed my sleep and dreams causing me to quickly forget my dream or dreams, and eventually I went back to sleep.

I had one or more dreams but when I woke up to organize them in my mind I forgot the first dream or most of the dream while trying to remember part of an earlier dream, and so now I can only barely remember part of an earlier dream from last night.

The dream was inspired by my brothers KD and TD talking in the real world on the phone with our dad and the Ghost In The Shell films, the last few days I watched all the Ghost In The Shell films (Ghost In The ShellGhost In The Shell 2: InnocenceGhost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society, and Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie), and last night I watched Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society.

All that I can remember of the dream is that some of the dream involved Ghost In The Shell related things and some of the dream involved my brothers KD and TD complaining about their search for a new automobile, like they were in the real world, and I remember being inside a building or house looking out the window at a parking lot and/or parking garage with several strange futuristic vehicles like something from a Ghost In The Shell film or television series.

One looked like it could hold more than one person and it somewhat reminded me of a Tachikoma, I wondered why my brothers KD and TD were not considering using it, and I remember trying to see if I could control it remotely like a puppet.

I stayed where I was inside the building but somehow I projected my consciousness or ghost from my body to the vehicle (I am not sure if I used a machine or if I just used my mind), I was able to control the vehicle this way, I knew that my body was still in the building and I could probably sense how far away from it I was so it was almost like being in two places at once because there was somewhat of a connection with my body.

I was not sure how far away I could move away from my body or for how long so to avoid any risks I drove the vehicle close to the building and not for very long, and eventually I returned my consciousness or ghost to my body.

I was not sure if that vehicle was street legal or not because it seemed to be more military-like than civilian, I thought about various things and did various things that I can not remember, and I tried controlling that vehicle remotely several times but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

The end,
