We flew over the Cascades
We were forced to behave while we sat
Rows are turning
I crossed some standard state lines
I finally found myself so far away from home
Even though New England tree dust goes through us
Are bones are cold as stick and stones

We flew over the Cascades
Just to find ourselves in storms we've never known
The winds are like a beast with wings and yes
Everything was blown so far away
And I fell down, I fell to call its name

Even after hours of waiting
There was no telling when the storm would find its way
Lands we tried to memorize
Were no longer acting temperatures of red
Through the night the storm held me down
Bend my neck and said "it'd be ok"
I stared into the fury
And the beauty of its overwhelming strength

The winds are like a beast with wings and yes
Everything was blown so far away
And I fell down, I fell to call its name

I saw a dim light in the mouth of the beast
So I followed it in
It's too late to retreat
It swallowed me whole
My flesh turned into meat
And I can't look back now
Cause the beast has come clean

We flew over the Cascades
We were forced to behave
