Metropolis pt2 : Scenes from a Memory

Scene One: Regression


“Close your eyes and begin to relax. Take a deep breath, and let it out

slowly. Concentrate on your breathing. With each breath you become more

relaxed. Imagine a brilliant white light above you, focusing on this light as

it flows through your body. Allow yourself to drift off as you fall deeper and

deeper into a more relaxed state of mind. Now as I count backward from ten to

one, you will fill more peaceful, and calm. Ten. Nine. Eight. Seven. Six. You

will enter a safe place where nothing can harm you. Five. Four. Three. Two. If

at any time you need to come back, all you must do is open your eyes. One.”


Safe in the light that surrounds me

Free of the fear and the pain

My subconscious mind

Starts spinning through time

To rejoin the past once again

Nothing seems real

I`m starting to feel

Lost in the haze of a dream

And as I draw near

The scene becomes clear

Like watching my life on a screen

Hello Victoria so glad to see you

My friend


Scene Two: I. Overture


Subconscious strange sensation

Unconscious relaxation

What a pleasant nightmare

And I can’t wait to get there again

Every time I close my eyes

There’s another vivid surprise

Another whole life waiting

Chapters unfinished, fading

Closer now – Slowly coming into view

I’ve arrived – Blinding sunshine beaming through

There’s a house I’m drawn into

Familiar settings, nothing new

There’s a pathway leading there

With a haunting chill in the air

There’s a room at the top of the stairs

Every night I’m drawn up there

There’s a girl in the mirror

Her face is getting clearer

Young child won’t you tell me why I’m here?

In her eyes – I sense a story never told

Behind the disguise – There’s something tearing

At her soul


Tonight I’ve been searching for it

A feeling that’s deep inside me

Tonight I’ve been searching for

The one that nobody knows

Trying to break free

I just can’t help myself

I’m feeling like I’m going out of my head

Tears my heart into two

I’m not the one the sleeper thought he knew


Back on my feet again

Eyes open to real world

Metropolis surrounds me

The mirrors shattered the girl

Why is this other life

Haunting me everyday

I`d break through the other side

If only I`d find the way

Something’s awfully familiar

The feeling’s so hard to shake

Could I have lived in that other world

It`s a link that I’m destined to make

I`m still searching but I don`t know what for

The missing key to unlock my mind`s door

Today I am searching for it

A feeling that won`t go away

Today I am searching for it

The one that I only know

Trying to break free

I just can`t help myself

I`m feeling like I`m going out of my head

Tears my soul into two

I`m not the one I thought I always knew

I just can`t help myself

I`m feeling like I`m going out of my head

Uncanny, strange Deja Vu

But I don`t mind – I hope to find the truth

Scene Three: I. Through My Words


All your eyes have ever seen

All you`ve ever heard

Is etched upon my memory

I spoken through my words

All that I take with me

Is all you`ve left behind

We`re sharing one eternity

Living in two minds

Linked by an endless thread

Impossible to break


II. Fatal Tragedy


Alone at night

I feel so strange

I need to find

All the answers to my dreams

When I sleep at night

I hear the cries

What does this mean?

I shut the door and traveled to another home

I met an older man, he seemed to be alone

I felt that I could trust him

He talked to me that night;

“Lad did you know a girl was murdered here?”

“This fatal tragedy was talked about for years”

Victoria`s gone forever

Only memories remain

She passed away

She was so young

Without love

Without truth

There can be no turning back

Without faith

Without hope

There can be no peace of mind

As the night went on

I started to find my way

I learned about a tragedy

A mystery still today

I tried to get more answers

But he said, “You`re on your own”

Then he turned away and left me

As I stand there all alone

He said, “You`ll know the truth

As your future days unfold”

Without love

Without truth

There can be no turning back

Without faith

Without hope

There can be no peace of mind


“Now it`s time to see how you died. Remember that death

is not the end but only a transition.”


Scene Four: Beyond This Life

[Headline:] “Murder, young girl killed

Desperate shooting at Echoe`s hill

Dreadful ending, killer died

Evidently suicide”

A witness heard a horrifying sound

He ran to find a woman dead and

Lying on the ground

Standing by her was a man

Nervous, shaking, gun in hand

Witness says he tried to help

But he`d turned the weapon on himself

His body fell across that poor young girl

After shouting out in vain

The witness ran to call for assistance

A sad close to a broken love affair

Our deeds have traveled far

What we have been is what we are

She wanted love forever

But he had another plan

He fell into an evil way

She had to let him down

She said “I can`t love a wayward man”

She may have found a reason to forgive

If he had only tried to change

Was their fatal meeting prearranged?

Had a violent struggle taken place?

There was every sign that lead there

Witness found a switchblade on the ground

Was the victim unaware?

They continued to investigate

They found a note in the killer`s pocket

It could have been a suicide letter

Maybe he had lost her love

I feel there`s only one thing left to do

I’d sooner take my life away than live with losing you

Our deeds have traveled far

What we have been is what we are

All that we learn this time

(What we have been is what we are)

Is carried beyond this life


Scene Five: Through Her Eyes


She never really had a chance

On that fateful moonlight night

Sacrificed without a fight

A victim of her circumstances

Now that I`ve become aware

And I`ve exposed this tragedy

A sadness grows inside of me

It all seems so unfair

I`m learning all about my life

By looking through her eyes

Just beyond the churchyard gates

Where the grass is overgrown

I saw the writing on her stone

I felt like I would suffocate

In loving memory of our child

So innocent, eyes open wide

I felt so empty as I cried

Like part of me had died

And as her image

Wandered through my head

I wept just like a baby

As I lay awake in bed

And I know what it`s like

To lose someone you love

And this felt just the same

She wasn`t given any choice

Desperation stole her voice

I`ve been given so much more in life

I`ve got a son, I`ve got a wife

I had to suffer one last time

To grieve for her and say goodbye

Relieve the anguish of my past

To find out who I was at last

The door has opened wide

I`m turning with the tide

Looking through her eyes


Scene Six: Home

[The Sleeper:]

Shine-lake of fire

Lines take me higher

My mind drips desire

Confined and overtired

Living this charade

Is getting me nowhere

I can’t shake this charade

The city’s cold blood calls me home

Home it’s what I long for

Back home where I belong

The city – it calls to me

Decadent scenes from my memory

Sorrow – eternity

My demons are coming to drown me

Help – I’m falling, I’m crawling

I can’t keep away from its clutch

Can’t have it, this habit

It’s calling me back to my home

[The Miracle:]

I remember the first time she came to me

Poured her soul out all night and cried

I remember I was told there’s a new love that’s born

For each one that has died

I never thought that I

Could carry on with this life

But I can’t resist myself

No matter how hard I try

Living their other life

Is getting them nowhere

I’ll make her my wife

Her sweet temptations calls me home

Home it’s what I long for

My home where she belongs

Her ecstasy – means so much to me

Even deceiving my own blood

Victoria watches and thoughtfully smiles

She’s taking me to my home

Help – he’s my brother, but I love her

I can’t keep away from her touch

Deception, dishonor

It’s calling me back to my home


Her story – it holds the key

Unlocking dreams from my memory

Solving this mystery

Is everything that is a part of me

Help – regression, obsession

I can’t keep away from her touch

Leave no doubt, to find out

It’s calling me back to my home


Scene Seven: I. The Dance Of Eternity


II. One Last Time


It doesn`t make any sense

This tragic ending

In spite of the evidence

There`s something still missing

Heard some of the rumours told

A taste of one`s wealth

Did Victoria wound his soul?

Did she bid him farewell?


One last time

We`ll lay down today

One last time

Until we fade away

One last time

We`ll lay down today

One last time

We slowly fade away


Here I am inside his home

It holds the many clues

To my suspicions

And as I`m standing here right now

I`m finally shown what I have always known

Coincidence I can`t believe

As my childhood dreams slowly come true

Are these her memories

Awakened through my eyes

This house has brought back to life

An open door

I walk on through

Into his bedroom

Feeling as cold as outside

The walls disappear

To some woman who`s screaming

A man pleads forgiveness

His words I cannot hear


Scene Eight: The Spirit Carries On


Where did we come from?

Why are we here?

Where do we go when we die?

What lies beyond

And what lay before?

Is anything certain in life?

They say ” Life is too short”

“The here and the now”

And ” You`re only given one shot”

But could there be more

Have I lived before

Or could this be all that we`ve got?

If I die tomorrow

I`d be alright

Because I believe

That after we`re gone

The spirit carries on

I used to be frightened of dying

I used to think death was the end

But that was before

I`m not scared anymore

I know that my soul will transcend

I may never find all the answers

I may never understand why

I may never prove

What I know to be true

But I know that I still have to try

If I die tomorrow

I`d be alright

Because I believe

That after we`re gone

The spirit carries on


“Move on, be brave

Don`t weep at my grave

Because I`m no longer here

But please never let

Your memories of me disappear”


Safe in the light that surrounds me

Free of the fear and the pain

My questioning mind

Has help me to find

The meaning in my life again

Victoria`s real

I finally feel

At peace with the girl in my dreams

And now that I`m here

It`s perfectly clear

I found out what all of this means

If I die tomorrow

I`d be alright

Because I believe

That after we`re gone

The spirit carries on


Scene Nine: Finally Free


You are once again surrounded by a brilliant white light.

Allow the light to lead you away from your past and into this lifetime.

As the light dissipates you will slowly fade back into

consciousness, remembering all you have learned.

When I tell you to open your eyes you will return to the present,

Feeling peaceful and refresh.

Open your eyes Nicholas.


Friday evening

The blood still on my hands

To think that she would leave me now

For that ungrateful man

Sole survivor

No witness to the crime

I must act fast to cover up

I think that there`s still time

He`d seem hopeless and lost with this note

They`ll buy into the words that I wrote

This feeling

Inside me

Finally found my love

I`ve finally broke free

No longer

Torn in two

I`d take my own life before losing you


Feeling good this Friday afternoon

I ran into Julian

Said we’d get together soon

He`s always had my heart

He needs to know

I`ll break free of the Miracle

It`s time for him to go

This feeling

Inside me

Finally found my love

I`ve finally broke free

No longer

Torn in two

He`d kill his brother if he only knew

Their love renewed

They`d rendezvous

In a pathway out of view

They thought no one knew

Then came a shot out of the night

“Open your eyes, Victoria”


One last time

We’ll lay down today

One last time

Until we fade away

One last time

We’ll lay down today

One last time

We fade away

As their bodies lie still

And the ending draws near

Spirits rise through the air

All their fears disappear

It all becomes clear

A blinding light comes into view

An old soul exchanged for a new

Familiar voice comes shining through


This feeling

Inside me

Finally found my life

I`m finally free

No longer

Torn in two

I learned about my life by living through you

This feeling

Inside me

Finally found my life

I`ve finally free

No longer

Torn in two

Living my own life by learning from you

We`ll meet again my friend

Someday soon

[CNN report:]

“… their lead story,

all anticipating the outcome of the man considered to be a member of American nobility.

And as you can imagine, as the skies have grown darker

here over Washington,

The moon has grown darker as well and people here are

beginning to resign themselves to the possibility that they are

witnessing yet another tragedy in a long string of misfortunes.

Reaction from everywhere, from Washington and certainly

from around the world has guess…”


“Open your eyes, Nicholas'”

Mandiri E Toll Pass – the Review

As per government information regarding the payment model in the Highway/Toll Road that will not accepted cash transaction starting on October 2017, i’m starting collecting E Toll Card in case i have to go thru Highway/Toll. Luckily i have some from my community that release E Toll card as their ID Card. But using E Toll buy tapping them to the machine sometimes not practical. So i decided to buy the E Toll Pass. For some who don’t know E Toll Pass, E Toll Pass is a device that we put in our windshield, we put our E Toll card on the device and then later, the reader on the E Toll Gate will detect our device and then, the gate will open itself without we have to tap the card, cool right? I will show you in my video below.

After done some research on where to buy the E Toll Pass Device, i got one in Tokopedia ( i’m not Tokopedia Sales person ) with the reasonable price, because a lot of store that also offer E Toll Pass. The price that i spotted in Tokopedia range from IDR 490.000 – IDR 650.000, be wise while choose the store.

Here’s some picture of the Mandiri E Toll Pass Device

E Toll Pass Packaging Box

Some view of the device with E Toll Card inserted ( the package is already got the E Toll card inside with 0 Balance )

This 2016 model is slimmer than the previous model. In this model we have small display and one button to check current balance and battery level. The placement for this device is attached to windshield using 3M sticker provided in the device.

Ah almost forget, this E Toll Pass device is powered using 1 9Volt battery.

The instalation process in the car is quite simple,

1. You have to choose position where you want to put the device, make sure it didn’t block your view or disturbed you

2. Put your E Toll Card inside the device, make sure you have enough balance in your card

3. Clean the area on the windshield before you attached the device

4. Remove Bracket from the device

5. Remove 3M cover at the bracket and do not touch the sticker as it will affect the stickyness of the sticker.

6. Adjust angle of the device so logo on side is horizontal , this is to adjust the angle of device so can be read with the sensor on GTO

And thats is.

How it work? I’ll show you in this video

Now the GTO that already accept E Toll Pass is increases, example, in GT Pondok Aren Bintaro, all the GTO already accept E Toll Pass. So this will be a good investment to have this device

That is it from me, if you have further question, feel free to comment in this article

Drive Safe, Be Wise

Review Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard

Kali ini saya mau mengulas mengenai keyboard foldable keluaran microsoft, Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard. Kebetulan udah pengen beli keyboard ini dari setahun yang lalu tapi ga jadi jadi karena gw orangnya emang kebanyakan mikir, tapi akhirnya gw beranikan diri juga buat beli. awalnya gw cek keyboard ini di bhinneka sebagai website acuan klo mau beli barang IT, but ternyata harganya kok lumayan mahal, walaupun pas bulan ini lagi banyak bonus yg dikasih sama Bhinneka klo beli keyboard ini. akhirnya iseng gw coba cari di tokped, salah satu tempat andalan gw klo cari barang selain di ebay ( gw jg cek di ebay tapi harganya jg ga terlalu menarik ). akhirnya gw dapet jg tu keyboard di salah satu toko di tokped dengan harga selisih 500rb, lumayan menghemat kan, bisa cicilan pula hehe.  Continue reading


Sering denger alesan ini? Kayaknya telat ini udah jadi budaya orang indonesia ya, entah kenapa. Apa karena kita ini terlalu permisif mungkin ya dan terlalu toleran untuk hal hal yang harusnya strict. Sering denger mungkin alasan gw masih OTW ya, atau di lift nie, entah lift gedung mana hahah, atau macet nie, satu Indonesia juga tau Jakarta itu macet. 

Nah kira kira gimana ya supaya kita tu bisa ga telat, gw orangnya emang ga suka telat, dan gw biasanya lebih suka kepagian daripada telat, sekarang pun gw udah pake transportasi umum untuuk ngakalin yang namanya macet supaya bisa sampe di tempat tujuan dengan cepat dan ga jadi telat. Bukan berarti gw ga pernah telat ya, klo kata orang jawa, shit happened, tapi ya itu jadi koreksi buat diri sendiri aja, berarti next nya harus kudu lebih prepare. 

Pernah di suatu kegiatan ada jadwal yang sudah ditentukan oleh panitia, klo peserta harus hadir pada pukul sekian, kalo lewat dari waktu tersebut, slot akan diberikan kepada orang lain. Ternyata ada yang telat, dia si telat ini berargumen, saya kan cuma telat 7 menit, kenapa saya ga bisa pake slot saya? Dalam hati gw pengen jawab, klo misalnya ini terjadi di suatu penerbangan, yang jadwalnya udh strict, trus penumpang ketinggalan karena telat 7 menit, trus loe mau marah marah gt sama pilotnya, saya kan cuma telat 7 menit? Ato misalnya masuk kawasan ganjil genap dengan plat nomor yg ga sesuai, trus kita masuk situ di jam 7.07, trus kita mau debat sama polisinya, saya kan cuma telat 7 menit, kok ditilang? Kaga ada cerita coy, lewat jam 7 pagi plat loe beda ya slamat dapet tilang ya hahahah

Intinya, telat itu bukan karena keadaan, loe pasti bisa lah ga telat, tergantung kemauan aja

Okelah segitu dulu aja , sambung lagi lain waktu

See yaaaa
