if i'm going out
i want to take with me
(a month of golden sundays)
if we're going out
should we bring a map?
or should we lose ourselves in meaning

where we are - in the blink of an eye
you get several meanings

if you come back down
be sure to hear the sound
(of xylophones gently breathing)

where we are - in the blink of an eye
you get several meanings

do you question what's in sight
as the sun is setting
as the airplane hits boundaries
a waterfall fell on an optical atlas
what was remains the same
it took up residence
with a peculiar noise called "train director"

    General CommentIt's peculiar, not familiar.

    "heading out", not "going out"

    And this song is so quirky and fun.

    General Commentthis is one of the most mind blowing songs i've ever heard, i love how the soundscape fits the lyrics PERFECTLY. As for the meaning of the song i think it describes how or brains can attatch different meanings to things depending on how you look at it.
