Lyrics
 
 
Now I’ve, been thinking about space, been thinking about time
And how it all relates
I think back, to when it all began, with nothing but a void,
Then a big bang
Now my life, has traveled the same lines
I dabble in space, and I waste a lot of time
But I’ve yet, to get the big bang
And even Stephen Hawking knows the nature of man
 
It’s who we are, not where I’m going
No matter how far, or where I’ve been
From every star, a light keeps glowing
Though it’s as far as time has been
 
Now I’m, in a complicated place
I got middle aged hair, and adolescent taste
I’ve got a repossessed mind but it serves me well
And has a good time
Now I’ve, got imaginary friends
But they never come around, when I most need them
and I’ve got, an apologetic fist
It’s just a matter of time before it goes off like this
 
It’s who we are, not where I’m going
No matter how far, or where I’ve been
From every star, a light keeps glowing
Though it’s as far as time has been
 
I wanna burn bright, bright, burnin bright
I just want to shine, burnin bright
I wanna burn bright, bright, burnin bright
I just want to shine, burnin bright
 
Now I, get a sharp denim twist
Whenever you walk by and brush my hip
I won’t fight, cause I can’t resist
I’m just a little confused, how it came to this
Now I am, a little smarter than I seem
But as for hittin on the road, I’m 0 for 17
since then, I’ve been propositioned twice
once by my hand and the other my wife
 
chorus
 
sometimes, I’ve just got to stop,
take a deep breath, have a walk around the block
as I try to read between the lines,  they conspire to meet
In the corner of my eyes
Now my life, has been misplaced, it’s no longer my own
Any doubts have been erased
But I’ve got, a sophisiticated plan
I’m gonna keep dancing til they break up the band
 
chorus
