Each ticker-tape parade is followed by a broom brigade
To sweep up all the mess we made
Don't let me off this float

Each smiley face I see reminds me of the agony
But every love ends in defeat
Don't ever let me go

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
In the end we're sent to bed and put to sleep
But not me

I'm never coming down
Not ever coming down
Forever coming down

In a hot air balloon the moon hangs low and so do you
I pop a bottle of champagne
And toast a love grown cold

Keep pushing into me, the [?] a tapestry
Why can't we live so blanketed
In the moment we explode

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Flashy fireworks decay into debris
But not me

I'm never coming down
Not ever coming down
Forever coming down

I'm never coming down
Not ever coming down
Forever coming down

I'm never coming down
Not ever coming down
Forever coming down

    General CommentAccording to Tim himself:
    "This was one of the first songs written for the album and helped set a tone for the style we wanted to capture. This song is very 120 Minutes to me (that’s Subterranean to you younger kids) (That’s… YouTubing alternative band videos?!?! to you much younger kids). This song’s lyrics also works as the main template for the amazing artwork illustrated by Dan Black."
