Years changing
Filthy water at dusk
Can’t help but feel
Things are bigger than ever before

Watched the leaves fall
Then get back up on the trees and fall again
Heard my name called
By the voice of wasted chance

It all slipped and slid on down
And I picked it up to watch it fall again
And tomorrow refused to hit
But then the sky broke and let it in

And this water isn’t cold enough
And this water smells like the sea
And I lie, and I feel weightless
And I feel it’s the only way to be

I took a journey to the pyramids–
There was nothing there but sand,
And the ghost of a child who had never been born.
In a thousand years, no one planted trees there,
So all that grew from the sand was stone…
And he screamed, “No more, no more, no more,”
But she added to the road maps on her veins,
And he summoned the strength to bite down on the splinters,
And deliver them both away.

Last time we came down the mountain
Was the best day I ever lived.
We went farther than we’d ever been before,
And I knew the summer was on its way.
One, two, three, we counted down;
It was all laid out before us in black-and-white,
And I defused the bomb,
And I sifted through the wreckage,
And I had it all figured out,
And it was our year,
And we took it in our hands,
And I took a fistful of dirt,
And swallowed it down,
And said, “No more.”

And now we stand in the fading light
Of something too big to see
And the sun will rise when the moon will set
Behind the endless mass of the trees

And there’s something new at the end of the road
And there’s something good beyond the trees
And I’ll drive on out to that place out there
And park my car by the sea

Once the ball has dropped, it’ll be in sight
It’s out there, waiting for me
Finally,
Tomorrow is today.
