lyrics

One morning while he still reclined between the snooze bar and the grind, he had a vision of a graph that marked how happy’d been his past. And he decided that the Y would be divided 1 to 10, 1 being bummed and 10 as happy as a man could ever get. Don’t forget the chart goes on and on and on, the X line marks the day we’re on, and on into the future rolls to the beyond. And the 10 only represents how happy we thought we could get. When we approach it, then we see the ceiling lift eternally.

I reached the peak, I peeked, and the end was the beginning and the 10 was now the infinite. I saw the line, I saw it lied. I saw you and I were spinning in the light beyond the definitions.

So here we are and aren’t we starry-eyed, just wish I had control, wish I had the manual that told me all that was untold, like where to go and who to tell and who to tell to go to hell. Some won’t approve, some just confuse the lives of others with themselves. I hear them crying out beneath, I see them trying all the keys, I see you riding next to me, and I see all the rest recede. And here we are, the car, the night, the headlights glowing on the road. These are the only things we know, then you turn up the radio.

I reached the peak, I peeked, and the end was the beginning and the 10 was now the infinite. I saw the line, I saw it lied. I saw you and I were spinning in the light beyond the definitions.
