LYRICS

Both of us see a cloud
Or whatever we may believe
Being it may be proud
Or whatever we want to see

OK, jump

Cirrus in [Cumulus] light [dark] you lie [vow]
Give us varying [colorful] shades of grey
Floating inside [outside] the sky
Show us everything [nothing] everyday [in any way]

OK, jump to end it all
Let this one be to break the fall

It's a little bit of magic to end the world
[But I thought you knew me truly]
Something different than we started with in the world
[Does it even matter to me?]

I was in the hearing
Bumming a humble clearing from Caligula
In his Shangri-La La La

It's a little bit of magic to end the world
[But I thought you knew me truly]
Something different than we started with in the world
[Does it even matter to me?]

Miracle worker I saw you begin it
Walking the water [so soft on the rain]
See what you see in the surface [a limit]
Ladies and gentlemen, please

Why don't we keep it coming back
And coming back
And coming back

Why don't we keep it coming back
And coming back
[Join if you wish]

Keep it coming back
And coming back
And coming back

Why don't we keep it coming back
And coming back

We've been to this scene [These days it's hard to find friends]
Aboriginal meme [But opportunities bend]
Had a smotherful mother full of meddle and steam [And we spend the chance sleeping on the top of the fence]

Can't believe what we've seen
Won't be burned to the ground
Though we make ourselves castles
Every tide we're around

Do you like how I walk? Do you like how I talk? (It's a little bit of magic to end the world)
Do you like how my face has learned to tick like a clock? [But I thought you knew me truly]
I have a wonderful life, I know a powerful Bob (Something different than we started with in the world)
He eulogizes me for being geocentric (ha ha ha ha!) [Does it even matter to me?] 

Keep it coming back
And coming back
And coming back

Why don't we keep it coming back
And coming back
And coming back
And coming
