In 1986 on a field trip from school in Erlangen, Germany, I was abducted. Transported across the iron curtain to Czechoslovakia. Placed with the family of a low ranking government official I was told this is life now, make the best of it. In September of 2001 I went to bed like any other day, and woke up in Texas as another man. Flipping a switch on life yet again. No explanations, everything set up for me like the life I knew before was a dream.

Sometimes when it's quiet, and I am alone, I hear music from my other life. This is what I have tried to reproduce here. I will never know why I was taken, either time, but the sounds still haunt me and always will.
