Seems the time is near for finding a place outside
Seems the time is here for holding the window wide
So I'm going to try
To open up one eye
But if the world is too wide
I'll be home to hide
Keep it warm inside, if it's strange, outside.

Seems the time has flown, when we lived inside a cloud
Seems the time has gone, when nothing we said was out loud
Going to find a word
Make myself be heard
But if the world is too loud
I'll be home from the crowd
Keep it soft inside, if it's strange, outside.

Seems the time has come for banging our feet to the ground
Seems the time has come to see if the world is round
Sweep the smoke away
Reach the earth today
But if the world is all wrong
I won't be staying long
Keep it cool inside, if it's strange, outside.

    General Commentthis song is about wanting to do or make something, but knowing that it must be done outside, in the world, for it to be meaningful. but what if you don't want to go outside? and what if when you try, everything you feel out there makes you want to go back inside? **also, not so much being literally inside.... but more like, inside yourself. being an introverted sort of person and finding the utmost comfort in being alone.
    (story of my life.) why hasn't anyone else commented on this?
