With your feet grounded
Your thoughts turn towards the skies
And you start to float
You see your shoes are tied

So you close your eyes
Imagine that your shoes
Had those velco straps
So you could be set loose

And you hold real still
Believe that it is true
And your shoes move forward
Leaving without you

And you laugh so hard
It hurts your sides in pain
As you approached the sun
It rains on everyone

You float away
You float away
and find yourself, laughing
Into thin air

    General Commentit's sort of interesting how the album goes from sort of noisy sounding towards the beginning to really nice music in the middle/early end

    General CommentThis song helps me floating away, makes me feel good and chilled. Maybe this is my favorite.

    General CommentStarts off really good but towards the end I don't think it's that good should keep it at the level it starts with
