The Great Unknown

Lyrics: Particle
Music: Particle

A Particle song played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2008, with Steve Molitz on vocals.

Falling faster, rise to the sky
Cry, why didn't I see this coming?
And was I pushed or did I lose my grip
Slip, falling in [its own mistake]
And when I wake up from this dream
Scream, before I hit the ground
And would that be eternity
Or is this a second chance?
Ten, nine, eight, seventy, six, five, four, three, two, one

So this is it
The great beyond, the greatest step
No more second chances left to take
I could have used somebody on my side to ease the pain
I could have used just another day to find my way
But as I fell, I was blind to see
You wrote the nouns right in front of me
So now I'm all alone
Lost in the great unknown
I should have changed my tune
Now the [songs soothe]
There's nothing I can do
