A Tribute to Rod

Kaleidoscope haze cloud images of sound
I sit here alone listening to my heart pound
Some where now between the real and unreal
Time makes you doubt exactly what you feel

Thanks to you, Rod, I'm in the twilight
You entertained us all in the dead of night
We sat glued to the TV for that half hour
Then walked away with our reasoning losing power

There never really is a danger zone
Just a temporary insanity loan
I'm not frightened Rod, I can still watch more...

...I'll just hide under the covers and bolt the door
