lyrics

up in the sky
watch the universe glide by
how insignificant am i
down below

the sun must rise
pulls the blue across our eyes
lights a world where i’m despised
the morning show
dodging blows

i don’t mind
i know that you want me to
want me to be just like you
i’ll leave you behind

deep blue sea
and your cool infinite
you’re full of life just like me all alone
crashing waves
smothers the blues in whites and grays
johnny cruz and curtis hayes
follow me home
they’d break their fists if i turned to stone

i don’t mind
i know that you want me to
want me to be just like you
i’ll leave you behind

the race is long we’ve just begun
the finish line will judge who’s won
and i’ll run and run while you lie in the sun

face to the ground
hear the laughter dying down
the mindless gather round
nothing here to see

lip’s gonna swell
is that the first or second bell
a blue sky caps the well
above a frozen sea
and me

i don’t mind
i know that you want me to
want me to be just like you
i’ll leave you behind

i don’t mind
i know that you want me to
want me to be just like you
i’ll leave you behind
