Slow dive on chemical hill
Slow down, you're making me real
Silver and '79
Shifter and planets align
Silver shifter, shift it out

Glider glider diving down
I will go and you will show
The moon will glow moonlight
On the silver shifter, silver shifter

Seven is never enough
Slide her into the stuff
Slow gun and a colorful flag
Shift her into the swag
Silver shifter, shift it out

Glider glider diving down
I will go and you will show
The moon will glow moonlight
On the silver shifter, silver shifter

Softer down for the counts
Love comes in every ounce
Silver is up for appeal
Shifter is making me real

Silver shifter, shift it out
Glider is tighter, touching down
I will climb and you will find
The moon will shine moonlight
On the silver shifter, silver shifter

    My InterpretationI always think of a bike ride when I hear this song. A silver shifter is a cycling accessory. I imagine the guy Whalen heard this term and thought it had a provocative sound...turned it into a stream of images going in and out of a trippy bike ride. When I look at a lyric like this, I don't expect every line to have a deliberate meaning. A lot of it would be "here's a word that rhymes...which calls up another set of images..." Still, you could think about "slow dive...glider touching down...shift it out..." -- a trippy bike ride. Contrary to above lyrics, I hear "I will ride and you will find the moon will light moonlight." Getting a little reachier, the "slow gun" and "colorful flag" could be like a bike race...No? Okay, maybe not. Cool song, though, I dig it.
