Our hearts take us places our minds can't go
and stairs that lead to nowhere fool us
and sticks and stones and names break our bones
while children spin on merry go-rounds...
Raindrops fall into their right places
Fall leaves blowin know which way to go
So why am I so afraid, afraid just to be alone
In the silence in between my thoughts?
Another trip around the sun
was over just before it had begun.
What just happened?
Did anyone notice?
All the while, we're on a big spaceship
Too vast to notice it's not flat at all
And there are no monsters lurkin at the edges
Only monster costumes and silt...
on this air balloon, tethered to the moon
Oh, what a view!
Our lives are a tangle of stories
We find all these reasons to live
Ticking, always ticking, tickin like a time bomb
As we dance gracefully through space...
