lyrics

Sometimes, things seem so far away
On and on throughout the day
Whether you’re stressed or pressed or just a mess
Don’t just hover around the moments digressed

Clocking in and zoning out
Forgot what I was thinking about
Tangents off thoughts of another time
Seems for every present I’m stuck in line

Looking for meaning, wanting a prize
Something to capture, an apple of my eyes
Chasing desires around and around
Coming to in a circle ten feet in the ground

So odd how the important things get in the way
Of the trivial things we pursue many a day
I’d like to think I know what it’s all for
Should probably know what I want before I want more

There’s bells in the distant, the hour’s struck a new
There’ll always be something that you’d rather do
On plays the drummer boy, I’d like to find the echo
As nice as curtains are, I wouldn’t mind a show

Wandering about on this little world of mine
I spend my days in the observatory
Above the clouds, there’s a world milling about
And every person’s a star, I wonder who you are

I see constellations across my sky
Of time’s gone by and better ways
To enjoy myself, to live it all
Why do I walk through life like I’m about to fall? *

Scroll through the archives, see supernova’s past
Those that lived are those that last
See a message, stamped and sent in space
There’s only one world you’ve got to embrace

Up on mountain high, staring out
I want to know what life’s about
Should I build a spaceship or let them in
Maybe I’ll cut through the sky and let it all out

Softly holding scissors
Safely pointed away
I’d like to think today was another
Step headed the right way
