lyrics

Slippin’ outside to feel the sun pouring shine
No clouds above obstruct the ocean of sky
It's a subtle feeling, a simple sensation
As the light guides me to my destination (I hear)

Impatient engines of cars whizzing by
As I casually coast between the parallel lines
Approaching that place just beyond the horizon
Climbing those hills, man, they keep on rising

Away from what I want, what I need and crave
Put on my best gear and I try to be brave
Suddenly my thoughts take a turn for the worst
Asking the same questions we’ve all had since birth

“What am I doing? Why am I here?”
I guess I gotta stick it out at least another year
My arms are too short to fight what is fate
Gotta keep it going before it gets too late

Everybody wants it all, but knows not what they need
But you don’t even look so tall when you’re standing next to me

Can you find a reason, say that you’re not alone
Any reason to believe that you’re safe at home
When you’ve fallen apart and forget how to start
The answer may be closer than you know

And when the Earth turns its mighty head
And most people decide that it's time for bed
I gather my crew for a drink or two
Sleep is important, but this is better for you

If you have the right cast, the plot writes itself
The set doesn't matter, could be anywhere else
No need to act or do what you're told
Let's just relax and let the story unfold

Everybody wants it all, but knows not what they need
But you don’t even look so tall when you’re standing next to me

Can you find a reason, say that you’re not alone
Any reason to believe that you’re safe at home
When you’ve fallen apart and forget how to start
The answer may be closer than you know

Listen now, these are words of wisdom
We’re gonna get a little louder now, as you're entering our kingdom
Let yourself fall deep into this rhythm

The Good Mother keeps on bringing night and day
Sometimes with her you can keep your mind at bay
Dig deep and be enlightened by the little things
Feel your fingers reaching out to find your wings

Never know who or what can do you right
Looking for a guide far off in the light
From what you may gain, life might never seem sane
Could have had and lost it all, but you’d never know a thing.

Everybody wants it all, but knows not what they need
But you don’t even look so tall when you’re standing next to me

Can you find a reason, say that you’re not alone
Any reason to believe that you’re safe at home
When you’ve fallen apart and forget how to start
The answer may be closer than you know
