Did you ever stare at the globe?
As a kid and wonder (Did they see the same things you did?)
If other kids did what you did

Figuring out why...
We live where we live (Were you used to your surroundings?)
You're born and that's where you have to exist

A shape becomes a structure
A quote stands out of a lecture (Did your handwriting get faster?)
Suddenly everything comes together

When you're so young
Everything's so hard to do
When you're so young
They expect so much from you
I was afraid to follow through
I think I'm finally ready today

You still mean more to me
Than a million years of history
You still mean more
I don't show it so well
I spend too much time thinking about myself
I spend too much time
I can't justify
The past ten years
When I messed around
Without conquering my fears
Yeah, I didn't fix anything at all

You still mean more to me
Than a million years of history
You still mean more...
