Tipsy with St. John he's got me
feelin' like a kid on halloween
And he asks me what I wanna
be. I got nothin to say
He says that's ok he says.
I don't either but I got my
dreams and maybe some are
Apparitions in the fog.
But still I see them
Down in my soul like little girls
in bows held up on
Little boys' shoulders.

Do people, when they're older,
See distances on maps get smaller
And promises of happiness stalled?

I wanna see you again.

Now she's drawin' circles in the air
The ground is movin' under
me but to where?

Met Ms. Susie and she got a puke-red
apple in the ball of her chin.
So I hugged her neck
And said I'm sorry for the way I been
She said aw that's ok.

Into my shoulder she said
oh-oh-oh-oh
Now that I'm oh-oh-older
The places on maps have got smaller
And promises of happiness stalled

I wanna see you again.

    k according to their myspace:

    (The Heer's building was once a building of some importance and prominence in our town--it's the tallest, after all--but got kind of rundown and folks ran away. Now they're comin' back and fixin' it up, which is fine. One time we tried to steal some of the letters that had been on top of the building, only to find out they were a lot bigger than they looked when they were up there. This one goes out to Michael St. John. Keep reachin' for the sky!)

    See distances on maps get smaller
    And promises of happiness stall'd?

    I wanna see you again.

    So I hugged her neck
    And said I'm sorry for the way I been
    She said aw that's ok.
