Toss and turn through sleepless nights
That fail to bring me rest

A stomach full of big ideas

That press upon my head


There are better ways to learn



My body runs too far ahead

And leaves me to myself

But when I open up my mouth

Nothing dares comes out

Winding wind and talking trees

Bring the world down to its knees again


There are better ways to learn


There are better ways to learn


I fall and I learn I am and you are


Walking backwards through my room

Circle in the dark
Waiting for the my time to come

But waitings left its mark

Stick my hand across my mouth

To keep my thoughts from spilling out


There are better ways to learn

There are better ways to learn


I fall and I learn I am and you are


If I am slow to answer you
You'll know me by my breath

That raises hairs upon your spine

And pushes on your chest

    General CommentCanon Blue is pure magic for me. This song is, in my perception is about a guy who feels vulnerable to everything and everyone because he is captive of his own mind. He can't sleep because he can't stop thinking about life and contemplating his ideas. He's depressed, bored, unsure of what he's doing in this world, unsure of why he's unsure. I get the feeling it's about a guy who just can't figure it out, but in his heart knows there are better ways to learn...how to live.
