Roots deep down into the earth
where memories dwell before they re-emerge as some profundity you couldn't lose.
Like that time we took the car and we drove until it was cold and dark.
And we sat down by the lake and we discovered the reasons to stay awake.
Met him down by the ice cream parlor, your knight in rusty armor.
Now you're both dancing down the avenues.

And things travel through the lightpipes to swallow our nights.
What I wanted to say is always leaning out of sight.

So take a breath and taste those lies.
Television won't be revolutionized. Guess you got to do what you got to do.
But I hope we'll meet again, my most doubtful, yet courageous friend.
Now the walls just started to curve, but the sky is filled with twittering birds.

So when the helicopters close in to circle our kites
and the ceiling cameras first spot the new light.
I hope they got your last name right.

Things travel through the lightpipes to swallow our nights.
What I wanted to say is always leaning out of sight.
But I hope they got your last name right.
