Thirty-Five Thousand Feet Of Despair

Wayne's Notes from the Album:

"A short drama about a pilot who’s losing his mind little by little. He fears for the safety of his family when he’s at home. He fears for the safety of his passengers when he’s flying. Finally he fears he can no longer control himself and during a transatlantic flight he leaves the cockpit to go tot the bathroom and hangs himself… The story is told from the perspective of a news guy reporting from the airport as the plane comes in to land, this is on CD No. 1. On CD No. 2 is the pilot's “still sane” side as he walks down the aisle on the way to the bathroom. CD No. 3 is is the sound of the airport expecting a sad, heavy, nighttime arrival. CD No. 4 is the “not sane” side of the pilot, sort of unconnected and eerie, the vocals were run through a series of effects that, at times, sound like someone is laughing."

Another moth disintegrates
Hovering, in the beam of a searchlight (searchlight)
That’s looking for a trace of a plane
Whose pilot it’s a shame, has gone insane
You can see his silhouette across the moon
He hung himself mid-flight in the bathroom

Why is it so high?
Why is it so much?
Why is it so high?
Why is it so much?
