Veering none too soon.
It's a beginning to me.
Finding my own way.
These words don't matter to me.
Placing those shrouds at bay.

Hauntings claw at me,
Those things are drawing me here.
Don't want to find out why.
That mental voice do I hear.
'Splain it all with a criiiiiii-iiiiii-iiiiiiiiii-iiiiiiigh.

Just thinking to myself, connections that I find,
Just thinking way too much my thoughts get all entwined.
They're gently playing through my airy mind of lull,
They say just come with them and to leave my thoughts alone.
I say no way to you.
I say no way to you.

It's just opportune.
That's just me grinning with glee,
Sent them on their way.
Their words don't matter to me,
I kept the louts at bay.

Something smells to me.
Their pleas are drawing me near,
I think I found out why.
Those mental voices I heard
Complain to me with their criiiiiiiii-iiiiiiii-iiiiiii-iiiiiiiiigh.

Barely remember TOS and can't find my MB DVD right now, so I'll trust the pacing is perfect since the MB are one of your favorites. Good wordplay.
