Navigated into my own hole,
I've got a stunning view
Of all I can't control.

It's insulated but the walls are cold.
One foot on the ground.
One eye on the door.

Yeah, I thought that I was strong.
Just give me a headcount and I'll be gone before too long.
Sure, I thought we'd all help out.
What's a pocket full of change to loneliness and or a way out?

So I ride a bison through Golden Gate Park.
Running through the grass.
Dancing in the dark.

Cross the desert in a holy house.
Trample through the sand,
Never make a sound.

But I can't call a cab.
I don't understand!
I can't feel my legs.
I don't understand!
I can't say a word.
I don't understand!
Please help, I don't understand.

If I ever speak again,
Don't know what I will say to you.
You make me want to see the world,
But I don't want to leave your room.

I'm two years old strapped to the back seat.
Sweat drips off the toes of my baby feet.
The heat increases and my arms are locked in.
My stomach turns and the expulsion begins.
But the words get stuck at the back of my throat.
The dive head-first back into my soul.
Where a scared little boy hides in the flaps.
The reflex begins and my ribs collapse.

Now that I can speak again,
I just don't know what to say.
I'd kind of like to see my friends,
But I may never leave this place

    General CommentI love this band. They are exactly everything i love about progressive music.

    The part that starts at "I'm two years old..." is rad... pretty cool lyrics

    General CommentI think this song is simply about growing up. The artist has many feelings about getting older and exploring the world.

    While experencing the world the artist begins to panic and remember a similar sensation when they were younger (two years old to be exact).

    The first time I heard the song I thought he wanted to stay with his girlfriend but as I listened again I realized that it was a parent or guardian he was refering to "you make me wanna see the world but I don't want to leave your room".

    The song ends with the artist ready to go again but something (maybe physically) is holding him back from leaving the room.
