so i'm hitting the town tonight, cinder blocks for feet
shuffling through all the gazes i know better than to meet
finally i found a home, i finally have to leave

another permanent place i'd always hoped to make it to
i'm not the first of the astronauts to reach first avenue
a suburban flower trying to break some city rules

cuz i'm leaving the ground tonight
i'm over your ceiling
cuz down in your shrinking? lines, life is but a dream and
though you may pretend, this is how it ends
gone again,
gone again

so baby open your canyons up and sweep me right along
won't you give me a cold embrace, i'll give you one more song
then you tell me a lie and say you'll miss me when i'm gone

cuz i'm leaving the ground tonight
i'm over your ceiling
cuz down in your shrinking? lines, life is but a dream and
though you may pretend, this is how it ends

gone again,
gone again

couldn't tell you for sure the view is better from above
i'm not the first of the astronauts to leave the place i love
