The sun and the moon
are just holes
At the opposite ends
of a cardboard tube
Letting light in from some giant's room
When you think that you're big think again, think again

Just like children we'll be acting on feeling alone
(Alone alone feeling alone)

My ambitious days are numbered
The white flag's out of the box
The time has run off the clocks
I can't escape from these locks
It's a public drowning
And it's so embarrassing

When it turns turns turns into everyday life
You're trying to hard, you're lost in the turns...

Just like children we'll be acting on feeling alone
(alone alone feeling alone)

We can run as fast as we can
I won't let go of your hand
The universe is so grand
And massive in size
I'm thankful for our lives

When it turns turns turns into everyday life
You're trying so hard you're lost in the turns turns turns
of everyday life
You're trying so hard you're lost in the turns

Doctor where's my medicine
Can't you hear me screaming

    Song ComparisonThe first verse is taken from one of their old demos called Day by Day. The lyrics are exactly the same but the melody is way different.

    Also, Davey von Bohlen from The Promise Ring does the chorus "when it turns...." He's awesome.
