It's like we've driven past a phantom tollbooth
The brother watchdogs are counting time
Rhyme and Reason held captive in a castle
But we're doing fine

Never look down the road today
Past the ending line
Down the road, as we go, still we know
We're never stopping, but we're doing fine

It's like a playground of the mind,
And we'll right whatever we find
We'll set it down

But still, we'll never peter out
'Til the time runs the meter out
And the toll is just too much for us to pay
But still, we know it's better, though
in this world like we'll never know
Are we giving it all up to fade away?

It's like a meeting with Short Shrift
The meaning shift as time breaks apart
With each day as it melts away
From an empty heart
Your thoughts tripped, the pages slipped
We never got too far
You watch as your last night
Recedes from the light of a rising star

Conducting sunlight back to the day
We make the morning symphony play
Like never before, but never again
It's slipping away

But down here in the doldrums
We sleep like we're all right
Let's put out heads together
To escape the coming night
Down here in the doldrums
Neglected as we fight
So busy jumping to conclusions
Our hearts never see the light

Don't fade away
