Light and day
Is more than you'll say
Because all my feelings
Are more than I can let by
Or not
It's more than you've got
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

You don't see me fly into the red
One more, you're done
Just follow the seasons and find the time
Reach for the bright side
You don't see me fly into the red
One more, you're nuts
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

You don't see me fly into the red
One more, you're done
Just follow the seasons and find the time
Reach for the bright side
You don't see me fly into the red
One more, you're nuts
Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

Just follow the day
Follow the day and reach for the sun!

    General CommentOk so I dont want to sound all pesimistic or anything but when I read through the lyrics to this song I thought how ironic it would be if this song actually had a really sad message.

    I so far put together this possibility which seems to hold some weight. The first part about "light and day is more than you'll say" and his feelings are more than this other persons, suggested to me only one thing. He is in love with this person but these feelings are not being reflected by the other party who barely speaks to him.

    "You don’t see me fly into the red - one more you’re done " I thought maybe suggested suicidal thoughts as his love doesnt notice him and if it happens again then flying into the red could represent blood and cuttings maybe.

    and finally "You don’t see me fly into the red - one more you’re nuts
    Just follow the day
    Follow the day and reach for the SUN!" Could possibly be suggesting his thoughts are that this other person doesnt love him so they're nuts and now hes taking his life in the hope that he will go to Heaven where things maybe better!!!???

    Maybe I'm the one who is nuts. But still, wouldn't it be cool if a Polyphonic Spree song was secretly really sad and depressing? I doubt it though as I also noticed that if you bring down the lines "-One more your nuts/done" then the first letter from each line backwards in that section would spell "Joy" over and over again! Still I Tried.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is optimistic. It's sincere at least. The parts about "flying to the red" and "one more you're dead" are warnings about lifestyle and not doing drugs I think. So the message is just "follow the day and reach for the sun" which basically means just enjoy the world and life for its beauty and that drugs aren't the answer.
