I try every single day, but it goes away
I can’t see a single car on the interstate
Well, the billboards here, they advertise
They’re building up buildings so tall,
They scrape the sky

And everyone you’ve ever known,
Will go away,
For now

I climbed on a slanted roof, with a map of space
That I drew when I was five years old
And it’s inaccurate in every way
The telescope, facing the sky
Brought the whole universe closer to my eyes

And everything around my house,
Just went away,
For now

This is what I want
A telescope’s enough
I’m calculating the
Distance from here

And we apply a lot of words right by your eyes
And then we flood the world with lots of speech and color
And we apply a lot of words right by your eyes
And then we flood the world with lots of speech and color

First of all, I’d like to say
The things we do are not okay
And the way that we’ve made such poor mistakes,
We’re slowly drowning in our fate

And first of all, I’d like to say
The things we do are not okay
And the way that we’ve made such bad mistakes,
We’re slowly drowning in our fate

And we apply a lot of words by your eyes
And then we flood the world with lots of speech and color, and color
