Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Verse A over:

SA:

Are you missing us

Maybe wanting to be kissing us

If you must

Then please don't be dismissing us

When we're gone bailin on the bus

Nick:

Are we immersed in a sea of replicants

Hard exteriors and fake gold fronts

Losing yourself in the flavor of the month

Gotta be a better reason to colonize a star

Gotta be a better reason man's come so far

---> Play Verse B over:

SA:

Is that you in the mama-ocean-people-sea

Nick:

Is that you in this dream I see waving me

Both:

Closer with one hand

While the other shields your eyes as if surprised

To see the universe begin

---> Play Chorus over:

Being up on the mindspin

Are you still glad that it has been

Six years and seven months

This is what you want don't front

I'm feelin it right now

In this, the gold hour

Part clock and part man

Reconciling my life span

---> Play Verse A over:

SA:

Keeping things whole

We move out of the space where air flows

When all of a sudden here we are and here we go

Nick:

The evolutionary mind turns twists backflips

In space-time the continuum

Real-life planetarium

SA:

It's a natural fact

Time is speeding up

There isn't much left

Heart rate increasing

Bustin' through your chest compressed

Nick:

Is your life in the physical

But out of memory comes a vision

Which is a miracle yeah that

---> Play Verse B over:

SA:

Normally we just can't see

Nick:

It's not natural or typical

Of our same old thing

Both:

Livin' too fast

Unable to grasp the past

Or the future

When at last we ripple

After our big splash

---> Play Chorus over:

Being up on the mindspin

Are you still glad that it has been

Six years and seven months

This is what you want don't front

I'm feelin it right now

In this, the gold hour

Part clock and part man

Reconciling my life span

---> Play Bridge over:

Nick:

You remain and refrain

From the pain of wasted time

The last thing on my mind is

Running high fuel supply

Reason why

We just don't quit

Can you get with

A melding of two minds

What's the worst thing you could find

A paper trail that prevails

In demystification

People want to believe in mysteries

People want to believe in mysteries

Is the truth so bad?

Is the truth so bad?

Is the truth so bad?

Is the truth so bad?
