Marigolds and bougainvillea
Pressed against the fence
This might be my opportunity
To finally make some sense

Climbing towards the sky I gained a better understanding
About the sky in fact the sky starts on the ground here
So when I’m reaching up I’m really reaching out the boundaries
And I'm all dialed in
Cause we're all connected

It’s a simple life today
No matter what they pay me
Playing is my reward
So take it easy on the world when
She’s someone else’s girlfriend
Taste her cake and see how she likes you

Climbing to the sky to gain the other common knowledge
Yeah your world is watching waiting from the wings
So when I'm singing out I'm really thinking how astounding it is
That we’re all dialed in
We're all connected

Oh this spirit lies in Auld Lang Syne
And If you ain’t here today you’re just digging an icy grave
Bottle some hurt and fill in the dirt
And take them old marigolds away

Well, climbing to the top has never been my destination
Because the only way to stop is by jumping off
I don’t need this microphone to address the nation
Cause I'm all dialed in
We're all connected

    General CommentIt's about how everyone in the world is connected-whether through 6 degrees or through thoughts. Maybe cuz Jason's such a busy traveling musician that makes these lyrics are the more profound and poignant for him. I LOVE this song by the way.

    General CommentI'm trying to pick up on the flower references...
    does anyone have any ideas?

    I was thinking some sort of allusion to just like, beauty in the world or something. I don't know.

    General CommentThis seems pretty straight forward to me. He was at his home or maybe the home of a close friend in California, around New Years (Old Land Syne reference), I'm also pretty sure he wrote this smoking pot, just has that air to it. I've never heard this song, I don't know when it was released, my guess would be about the time he was starting to gain recognition. That's all it is, just him feeling connected to the world.

    General CommentThis is seriously one of the most beautiful songs he's ever written. Jason and I don't always agree idealogically, but the interconnectedness of all things is something I wholeheartedly agree on. Plus the musicality of it all kicks but.
