On the banks of the deep end
Where your soul is your best friend
Searchin' for a reason to go astray

Wild dreams turn to nightmares
Silver clouds turn to golden stairs
Everything that you used to know
Is slippin' away, yea

Here I've got my puzzle piece
Only got it for a short term lease
No time for askin'
No goin' back to get hurt
I take a little from the mixture
Try to put it into the picture
Got a place where you're standin'
Dig your shoes into the dirt

Tryin' hard to get back
Runnin' on the stones
Put you on my shoulders
We can be the only one
See the world's still spinnin' 'round
Gettin' dizzy when we look

There's a reason to be home
There's a feelin' when you smile
But it feels like it might take over
This feelin' deep inside
And there's a distance down the line
Far away from the station
We can leave it all behind
On a rollin' creation

Sit away from the window
Who will lock the door?
Can't you learn from the last time
And the time before
See the world's still spinning 'round

Gettin' dizzy when we look

Got to leave town
To see yellow flowers bloom
Sun goin' down
It's gonna be, gonna be risin' soon

On the banks of the deep end
Twistin' as a riverbed
Searchin' for a reason to go astray, yea

Couldn't hire twenty-five men
To do what the men couldn't do
Jus' the sound of his walkin'
Split the whole damn town in two
Into the night full of shadows
He still walks when the thunder rolls
This river ain't shallow
Reminds us that the bell still tolls

Bears in the kitchen
Tigers on T.V.
The singer's pretendin'
This song's for me
See the world's still spinnin' 'round
Gettin' dizzy when we look

Took a wrong turn down by the waterline
Heard they had to drag you off the sand
Find a dune and the wind will miss you
Hold on to a piece of dry land
Got to hold on to a piece of dry land
Got to hold on to a piece of dry land

On the banks of the deep end
Where I lost my best friend
Searchin' for a reason to go astray
