i disconnect my mind
i am red wing babe
summertime
sunshine has shone all day
all day
all day

up in the sky there is a color
and the airplanes painted human
out in the west there is a place
rolling hills and fields of grain
deep in the ocean lies a treasure
when i’m old and gray i hope it isn’t a desert

out across the wide expanse
it’s so dangerous
listen to me when i’m telling you this
listen to me when i’m telling you this
up above the trees and wires
the dark gray clouds and the sun’s great fire
expand
the great expanse
oh oh
the great expanse
oh oh
oh oh

oh woo oh woo oh

call me up on the telephone
ask me what i’m gonna do
i’m gonna stay home
gonna get stoned
gonna think hard about the state of things
gonna look up above the trees and wires
the dark gray clouds and the sun’s great fire
in space
the great expanse
oh oh
the great expanse
oh oh
oh oh

oh woo oh woo oh

up above
the mountain so high
tones carry me across the sky
tones carry you across the sky
we are like
a pair of balloons
oh and we’re not alike
we’re humans too
through and through and through and through
