There's one long process
Heard about it at the diner
They call it life
Over a cup of coffee
They run word of something finer
Much like a bible salesman
Talking pessimism and a time when things
really hit the fan

Could have sworn there was something here
Among truckers and waitresses
Well, why dont you take a seat
We can talk about political hits and misses
And the tales of homegrown fear
It's everything in something
Didn't you hear
There's darkness in the sky
Where they say love is supposed to fly
Somehow, I'm already there
I'm gonna forget, cuz I'm out of here

There's a second step
One I thought I forgot
Like the sense I never knew
There's a promise under the sky
that they call blue
One would have thought
that I'd be gone now
But I missed that next step
And I really don't know how

There's the rain
It comes from a place unknown
Religion calls it a sign from god
I've been thinking
And is there a such thing
There's a messiah
According to the black book
Somehow, I'll start to sing
About the loss of pain
And the promises I should have kept
How I'm supposed to love
Then give a ring

Without the second step
God's feels misery
There's a rupture
After a long train of thought
Lord knows I should be sure
Life is a con
In which you learn to control
But it's about time to settle
Because here comes the lady
with a tray of edibles
My stomach feels rather shady

Here comes the fulfillment
Among the sounds of whistling kettles
And storytellers from trucks
It's a thought on which I'm stuck
Well, it's time to say goodbye
All I want is in a brown paper bag
Avoid the plastic, let's save the world
Together we can start a revolution
Skip the second step with nothing to lose
Here comes a liberal movement
Let's spend our two cents
Nothing is making sense
Hell, we can shut up and fly away
