Pick out a few
get something easy
gotta lot of excuses
just to keep yourself here

Without a clue
taking a number
cause you're just feeling younger
at the end of this day

Oversee you
under a ceiling
that you don't quite believe in
but are willing to try

After we do
listen much closer
so the game makes you wonder
where it's taking us next

Sometimes you love
where you go
but you never
really do know
of the ways
to go down
under a world full of animal sounds

Looking through glass
waking the neighbors
cause you want them to save us
from keeping you here

Making it stop
under a ceiling
that you don't quite believe in
but are willing to try

    General CommentI love the way this song moves.Soft and fluid, but with a edge just below the surface. Something interesting I found in the lyric (not sure if it was intentional, but could be) is this:

    Syllables for each line of all verses:

    4
    5
    7
    6

    ...except for the second to the last verse, where the last line has only 5 syllables. This is the only line in the whole song that does not follow the rule, and I'm trying to find out if there is a significance. Anyone else have any guesses or ideas why this may have been done, artistically, or to convey some other, non-verbal message? Feel free to respond. I'm curious.
