It's a night light in my hallway
As ancient as the swing
Drifting gently in my own backyard

It's a crypt behind the highway
A landmark for the locals
That make love behind the parking lot

It's a corner of my being
A mirror to myself
That explains the reasons I can't think

It's a fountain of excitement
A river of suspense
Monumental springs that I can dream

We are not lost
We are not following trails
There's so much more the say
If we stopped ourselves then we would fail
At what is meant to be

It's a window in your basement
That shows the time of day
When your watch is in the factory

It's a lonely dirty alley
Suburban effigy
Used by neither criminals nor thieves

Climb across your boundaries
Let yourself be taken away
To the invisible points on the map
All the famous attractions
Before they fall and wither away
They all go home
And we stay out to play

It's the colors put together
Of fall and itchy sweaters
Burning pumpkin spice that makes smile

It's a walk along the grasses
Away from all the masses
That gives us a chance to think a while

We are not lost
We are not following trails
There's so much more the say
If we stopped ourselves then we would fail
At what is meant to be

(Instrumental)

Na na na na na na na na x14

Climb across your boundaries
Let yourself be taken away
To the invisible points on the map
All the famous attractions
Before they fall and wither away
They all go home
And we stay out to play
