The bird is here and we are off
To wherever those wings take us
The atmosphere is crawling with airlines
That wind through the clouds and look down on the crowds
Relax your back and let the noise
Sing you to sleep in my arms
If you awake before we arrive
I will carry you down and I won't make a sound
I regarded the world as such a sad sight
Until I viewed it in black and white
Then I reviewed every frame and basic shape
And sealed the exits with caution tape
Don't refocus your eyes in the darkness
And don't remember this place unless
I describe all the things that you cannot see
And we'll unravel the mystery
Good evening, shuttle bus, tell me where you're gonna to take us
Someplace that I have never been
It's chic transportation to new destination
Where I leave my reflection on the glass
I'd ask but we don't know how far these interstates go
Or how deep the city roots go down
In chilly sub-depth railways, the weathered concrete stairways
Provide me with a means of getting home... if I ever leave
On crystal sand
I'll Meet You There
If we could sit together a moment
And talk forever just to pass the time
I would smile as the shivers and chills run down my spine
When your eyes are locked on mine
Oh we'll fill the metro skies with country air
And when you close your tired eyes I'll meet you there
I'll meet you there
Deep inside of you there's a ruby glow
I'm moving to Tokyo
Cuz I'm tired of San Francisco
My contracts are finally void
And I am getting out
On houses and building tops
I swallow the beams and sundrops
If my echos could reach your ears
Then I could save my calls
What happens when I'm above
The east river when you are in love
High-rise, veins of the avenue.
Bright eyes and subtle variations of blue.
Everywhere, is balanced there.
Like a rainbow above you.
Streetlights, glisten on the boulevard.
Cold nights make staying alert so hard.
For heaven's sake, keep me awake.
So I won't be caught off guard.
Clearly I am a passerby.
But I'll find a place to stay.
I stood up and took a breath
And threw open the bay doors
Below the clouds I saw the coast
And beautiful Hawaii
Leaning back, the pilot smiled
And shouted, "Have a good trip!"
I signed off and closed my eyes
Then I was falling through the sky
Leaning back, the pilot smiled
Glamour and fashion models and magazines
A striking runway entrance
Beauty and passion, stardust and high class scenes
Of popular teens
When I lived in Denver, I met a millionaire
With ribbons in her blonde hair
I still remember, she was like a princess
Straight from a dreamy castle in the air
The Technicolor Phase
I am the red in the rose, the flowers
On the blankets on your bedroom floor.
And I am the gray in the ghost that hides
With your clothes behind your closet door.
I am the green in the grass that bends back
From underneath your feet.
And I am the blue in your back alley view
Where the horizon and the rooftops meet.
This Is The Future
Wake up on your own
And look around you cuz you're not alone
Release your high hopes and they'll survive
Cuz this is the future and you are alive
Dive in and swim away
From your loneliness and miserable days
And when you wake up on your own
Look around you cuz you're not alone
West Coast Friendship
Are you out there where the rainy days begin to feel rather sad
And the walls are closing in like the darkness around me
It's so hard to look away when the daylight doesn't ever stay
Above this dull apartment view - oh, I will surround you
It's quite clear that I'm stuck here
So I'll devise a plan and cut out a door in my new living room floor
The porch light is so bright
That I will quickly sneak down the dark metal shape of the rusty fire escape.
I bought a one-way ticket
