lyrics

In life, symbols of our time, creative minds will die, there’s no reason why
You’ll find, chances are you’re right, you’re loveliness is rife but something’s out of sight
It’s like, you’ve never seen the sky, the universe so wide, the energy of light

Nothing says your borrowed voice and twinkles sound good to me
Nothing says your borrowed voice and twinkles sound good to me
(Keep hold of your new tongue and speak whole of free fall)

Keep up, we’re falling behind, the fastest thing alive, a powerful kind
I’m told, it’s what you’ll want to know, a cure for your tone, a way to feel at home
If you like, we can see the sky, the universe so wide, the energy of light

Nothing says your borrowed voice and twinkles sound good to me
I wont test your frozen breath and words that fall on the breeze
(Keep hold of your new tongue and speak whole of free fall)
Of flowered bouncers and unkept waters, I don’t know what to leave
(Keep hold of your new tongue and speak whole of free fall)
