You live halfway
In a transient home off the highway
Didn’t mama tell you
There’s so much to see
There’s a silver lining
And a ripping seam
Everything’s overrated
I’m watching from too close
I’ll take one ticket to heaven
Dress up as the Holy Ghost

Got your head in the clouds
And two eyes on the shaking ground
I loved you from the petty view
And watched you like the daily news
Rehearsing what’s reality
What chaos is imaginary

In the bleachers
Someone teaches
About what’s worth knowing
Some bland candy scheme
Build yourself some boundaries
Just to kill the dream

Got your meds and your sky
You plant the moon in someone’s eyes
I did that too
I loved him and his violence for the pretty view
Rehearsed a strange reality
What chaos is imaginary
