Animated video by WitchCentipede-


cast out on a red sky
in the waves unlost
they keep reading all your thoughts

pass through undetected
moving with intention
echo - radar one

charting new directions
you understand intentions are not enough

so you take all the pieces
hide them in plain sight
now they will search with x-ray eyes

become the quiet signal
cut through all the noise
and navigate the tide

some days they see right through you
somedays never come
they walk the maze when you choose to run

in the darkest waters
there's a neon glow
it's in this way you will survive

pulled out from the wreckage
and with no regrets, you watch them come alive

some days they see right through you
somedays never come
they walk the maze when you do
oh what have you done

somedays never come

your time in the sun

For all practical purposes, our widest coverage area repeater...
Our widest coverage area machine
And it's being reflected on the Virginia Conference Server
And I believe-
And maybe several other spots, but most of the traffic on it has been...
For right now, that's all that's been going on really
And it's a one way- it's being streamed to the Virginia Server
