Hyperspatial Network

I started this song at Minicon, then finished it at FilkOntario:

Hyperspatial Network

Through eighteen lost dimensions, I am searching for a line
For your node there in the network to draw a little closer to mine.
There are pathways and connections, there are highways and dead ends,
But I only need one roadway so we can be together again.
It’s a tangle of confusion, uniting where and when
As I’m listening for an echo from a lover and a friend.
I am lost and I am lonely, I am far and far away,
But if I just get lucky, I’ll be on your doorstep today.

(Chorus)
It’s the hyperspatial network, come on and take a spin
On the hyperspatial network, ‘cause you’ve got to play to win.

It’s a transportation system that no human understands
And it’s outgrown its creators in a way they never planned.
Yeah, everything’s connected, but the map has been misplaced.
It’s a leap for hope and glory when you leap through hyperspace.
But I know that you are out there and you’re waiting on the line,
And I’m ready for transmission and I’m praying we’ll be fine.
I am seeking a connection that will send me homeward bound,
But if I’m not arriving, you will know where I am found.

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
You can twist me, you can bend me, you can turn me inside out.
It’s the chance I might be home tonight that makes me want to shout.

There’s a pathway in the network – it’s a pathway I can find
Past the hyperspatial junction where you’re putting yourself on the line.
Through eighteen lost dimensions that Euclid never knew
I can find the shortest distance to bring me home to you.
I am transiting a network where the lines are never straight,
But I’m listening for your signal and you know I’m feeling great,
‘Caus you know I hear you callin’ and you know your call is strong.
So you keep hangin’ on there and you know I’ll be along.

(Chorus)

It’s the hyperspatial network, come on and take a spin
On the hyperspatial network, ‘cause I play this game to win.
