*technically a Dave Matthews Band cover, but lyrics are all original

Hey, mister plans
With your hands in your eyes
How are those pretty
sandcastles of yours
Faring against time and tide?

Empty yourself
Of everything you hold true
Not even enough to
Fill my hat
As we bring it all back to you

I'm reeling still
From the salt on my tongue
Think I'll play it safe and
Let you go
If you understand where I come from

I'm getting used
To the scum of my age
Though this arrangement's
Far from good
At least it'll never change

And with bleeding hands
I had a dream

That hell was all around me
In yellow and green

And none of it was anything
That something like shame
Could ever hope to change
As I renewed

By long lost hope
That I could be some kind of superhero
And I'd wear my plastic cape
With a great big
Star-studded golden painted zero

I threw out and away
The things that make me measure in depth
If you should throw me
Lovely bones,
I can't say I would not accept

You're looking up to me
But not in the eye
You already know
What is wrong
Shouldn't be your big surprise, hey

And I see this light
Only cause I'm ablaze
With the nectar of tripping
About all my days

And I couldn't recall
The advice that I gave
But I know I could use it as
We patiently gaze

At the greatest of dreams
That I could somehow
Be some kind of superhero

And as I try on
This plastic cape
My head starts to ache
From the rust of all the zeros

And now the ages
Seem so gone
How'd I get here,
Get so far
For only so long?

So when the blood
Should finally fail
To outlive the rain,
And it's gone
Tell me, what the hell did you need
One more plastic star for?
