This is a suite. the 2 main characters are both killed almost simultaneously on the same day on different coasts of the USA. They meet up unknowingly at first in the the waiting room, where they discover they know each other from online gaming. After revealing themselves to each other, via their game avatars, they proceed to exit the waiting room and execute their own LIVE self-created version of the game they played together. After many adventures and drama, they experience a momentary temporal shift and are somewhat brutally reminded of their previous existence. this causes them to review their real purpose, and come to the conclusion that there is a higher path into eternity that awaits them


I. CRASH (Overture)
II. 3,000 MILES
It happened on a sunny day
Black road-top, ripples rising
Took a sharp turn way too fast
Hot tires took to flying
World tumbled, whirled around
Earth turned sky, sky turned ground
A flash, a crash, then not a sound
On that day ..
.Fate's rivers unwind
Two souls intertwined
3,000 miles away
On that very same day
It happened on a rainy day
Black ice sheen, danger hiding Hit the slick patch unawares
Cold tires took to sliding
World tumbled, spun around
Earth turned sky, sky fell down
A crash, a flash, then not a sound On that day ...
Fate's rivers unwind
Kindred souls intertwined
3,000 miles away
On that very same day

So here we sit, side by side
Two souls alone, no place to hide
We make our nervous overtures And then it comes with just a word
I know you
Another time, another place
You knew me by a different face
A different race, a different name
So much more than just a game
You know me

I'll show to you my avatar
So that you'll know just who we are
And then you'll see that we were friends
Just as before, so now again
I know you
You know me
We know us

So here we are back in the game
Now played out on a higher plane
No more need for cold machines
These worlds made real, straight from our dreams
Valleys, canyons, river wide
The rolling plain, stark mountainside
From the forest to the sea
It's just the start of what can be
Then summon up a lively crew
Of questors bold, companions true
A stalwart band to bravely go
Through trial and strife to meet the foe
Fabled champions, one and all
Who answer to adventure's call
We'll venture forth across the lands
With righteous justice in our hands
Storming the castle walls
Storming Heaven
Slay the dragon, seize the prize
'Neath golden sun and starlit skies
Live the story to the end
Then if we choose, do it all again
We can be anything
We can be anyone
Under or over the sun

But something's missing, something's wrong
This is not where we belong
This fantasy holding us here
Has made obscure what should be clear
Who are we?
The time has come to put away
The childish things of yesterday
To trade this muse of lands afar
For who and what we really are
Now see me ...
It happened on an endless day
Eyes opened, spirits rising
Out beyond this waiting room
Two souls took to flying
Move up, move on
Past a world now gone
Close the book, turn the page
To a timeless new age
Move up, move on
Through your second dawn
The great unknown
Will now be shown
And then this puzzle will be solved
The essence of true self resolved
The light of consciousness evolved
While all the universe revolves
And everything will be as one
Over and under the suns

( remember I'll always be here, waiting for you, and everything will be as one, over and under, the suns )

Ever wonder what inspired our name?

Here it is: From Pinnacle by KANSAS.

"Cast this shadow long that I may hide my face

And in this cloak of darkness, the world I will embrace

In all that I endure, of one thing I am sure

Knowledge and reason change like the season, a jester's promenade"
