(well i) guess that im getting older (but i) never know if im getting wiser (coz the) world is spinnin' a little too fast (and im) never really havin a blast (so i) take on to the piano (let out) everything that im holdin on to (coz im) one with the music when im strikin the keys (and im) feelin like the knees of the bees (so) find yourself a happy place (i) paint a picture of a lake (and) fill the space with notes you play (and) everything just comes together (so i) guess that im getting older (and ill) never know if im getting wiser (but i) know where to go to feel better (and i) know i'll be happier sooner

. raspberries at the break of dawn . (as) mulberries fall onto the lawn . sun rising so you wake and yawn . sun rising and the day is on save it on a polaroid and take a little hit of love . gone fishin by the wonder lake . meditation sweet as chocolate cake . reel it in after the sturgeon's hooked . (he) took the bait the upon a fateful look save it on a polaroid and take a little hit of love

keep a little journal (of) all of your thoughts (it's) something you can go to (when) you're feeling lost (put) pen onto the paper (don't) type it all up (just) isolate your senses (and) channel it forth tip-toeing away (is) how we spend the day (you) make a small misstep (can't) tell if it's ok tip-toeing away (a) journey that you roam (yer) losing sight of trees (yer) losing sight of home keep a little journal (of) all that you see (draw) something of a picture (if) you are so keen (put) pen onto the paper (no) phone in command (just) channel your emotions (to the) palm of your hand tip-toeing away (is) how we spend the day (you) make a small misstep (can't) tell if it's ok tip-toeing away (a) journey that you roam (yer) losing sight of trees (yer) losing sight of home

.. where does the wind come from in summertime? .. what is the force that starts the chain? .. flap of the butterfly effect in you .. spread of the wings amidst the rain .. (and) if the power blows you down (you'll) feel perplexed and looking 'round .. (just) flow against the breeze from time to time .. where does the snow come from in wintertime? .. (i) bet it's a place of mortal sin .. keepin you in the walls of solitude .. reaching your wings, a glass of gin .. (and) if the power blows you down (you'll) feel perplexed and looking 'round .. (just) flow against the breeze from time to time

(skippin) stones in the park on a saturday eve' (not a) care through all the earth (skippin) class for the grass on a sunny ol' day (not a) care for what it's worth .. when all of the buildings fall (or) if you lose it all (just) skip a stone and feel it hit the water (tellin) tales of a time that was simple and fun (not a) problem here to run (singin) songs of ideals we aspire to reach (with a) cabin by the beach .. when all of the buildings fall (or) if you lose it all (just) skip a stone and feel it hit the water

jupiter and back, a spaceman's eager journey wisdom in the sky, the stars ain't got no worry shooting through the void, i wouldnt doubt the rush now supernova vibe, i wouldnt keep it hush now hello world im, gliding homeward time dilation moves you forward dont forget me when you're older dont forget me when im younger jupiter and back, it takes a couple lightyears let me see the map, it's floating over my ears shooting through the void, but feeling at a stand still warbling around, i think i took the wrong pill hello world im, gliding homeward time dilation moves you forward dont forget me when you're older dont forget me when im younger

we are biking in the park; it's getting very dark; i guess we oughtta go on home now but the night has just be- gun; so what if there's no sun; the moonlight is e- nough for singing la la la la la la la, how the merrigo- round goes round and round and goes round again like la la la la la la la, how the merrigo- round goes round and round and round i am never getting tired; im only getting wired; so ask me in a couple hours now there's urgency a- foot; no wiser people could; dismount the need to be awake and la la la la la la la, how the merrigo- round goes round and round and goes round again like la la la la la la la, how the merrigo- round goes round and round and round

Inner Eye 02:42
.. inner eye . seein things that i cant shake from my ol' mind .. word of wise . sayin things that i should listen to (but) there's another half that's ruling me like the england kings did long ago; i dont wanna know .. inner eye . leading me to places i have never gone .. word of wise . taking chances with my fragile self

, when you dream (you) think about the people you love , when you're cold (you) put the dreams inside of your glove (so) tuck yourself in, and let yourself be free of the world (so) when you arise, you'll feel much more refreshed than before , when you dream (you're) still afraid that you're gonna fall (be)coz when you dream (you) rarely know you're dreamin' at all (so) tuck yourself in, and let yourself be free of the world (so) when you arise, you'll feel much more refreshed than before hey, when you're dreamin' dont forget about me aid in your comfort, and just set yourself free
