Long live the wide open future, right?
Drew a picture of this place
Just to have it to erase
Like an ordinary girl.

And she gave me a smile
Took a taste of my tear
Cause she only lies awhile
And then she disappears.
No explanation, nothing to explain
Just rearrange his face back into what's-his-name.

What I want is out of reach.

You knew a lot of funny jokes
'Til your television broke
Got a sudden attack - now you're back flat on the mat.
I bet your mom is thrilled you found a guy that pays his bills
You don't regret what you had to kill
You ain't afraid of it.

It's a dying little smile
That takes a couple years
She only lies awhile
And then she disappears.
Dirty information, something to explain
Before you rearrange my face back into what's-his-name.

What I want is out of reach.
What I want is over.

Long live the wide open future, right?
Long live the wide open future, right?
It's a dying little smile
That lasts a couple years
She only stayed awhile
And then she disappeared
Off to a vacation where nothing has a name.
Blow apart the planet and begin again.

What I want is out of reach.
What I want is over.

    General Commenti think the song is about, what he thought he was going to have. like he was going to be with this girl forever. but they broke up and they are now out of reach.and it is over.
