Liner Notes

This song is one of my favorites. I almost did not record it. It was written long ago but recorded sometime around 2008. I played everything on this song. It speaks to the short time we have on this earth, but to the long time we have in eternity. You know we're gonna live forever... the question is where?


I Am A Time Machine


All the pictures that come to me on the reel I call my life

Are my moments spent in Glory on the edge of Planet Knife

And the Sages of the Ages spin a web from here to there

We're the monkeys in their cages swinging on our vines of fear


I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine

I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine


I'd love to send you photos of what life is like out here

You know, we're gonna live forever, the question is where?

I think because I am that I am because I think

You know, I'd love to send you flowers even Angels haven't seen


I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine

I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine

And I don't know where I'll be, but I'll be in time

I'll be in time…


All the pictures that come to me on the reel I call my life

Are my moments spent in Glory on the edge of Planet Knife

And the Wise men of the Ages all know there's something more

When I Am becomes the Portal, when I Am becomes the Door


I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine

I am a Time Machine, I am a Time Machine

And I don't know where I'll be, but I'll be in time

I'll be in time…
