Taken from Operation Mindcrime, written by Queensryche in 1988. I think that AI is some kind of Operation Mindcrime. You should think about it. (If Americans can still do that these days...)

Calm down Stephan. Just think: in just 2 months, the strawberries will be ripe. Yummm. I love strawberries !!! Hey, you know what would be good? A nice glass of water. A really big glass of water. Then, go for a walk outside and see those pretty spring blossoms. Have you been in the sun lately? It is good for you.

Wow, after reading that I feel as if I've raised my head and stared into the eyes of a stranger. I've always known that the mirror never lies.

Oh and I only dream in infrared :-)

I don't know about the American Idol connection but they are pretty cool lyrics .Never was much in to Queensryche but maybe I'll look for the song and try to download it.

Operation:Mindcrime is actually really, really good. Very melodic and pretty intelligent.

Queensryche went through some tough times, but the new Mindcrime 2 is darn good as well. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it after the previous two albums kinda boring me.

I have said too much. Later!!
