I've been sleeping fair
Lately I could swear I'm thinking
Clearer and clearer
And I've been working hard
Looking at my punch card and
My mirror, my mirror
But I daydream in my room
I'm baying at the moon
Ricochet in time to the the music
You just pick a day and I'm in
A new destination
I take too many planes
I know too many names and I
Forget them
I wanted to know if dreams
Would lie
You said they would try and I
Said let them
You just let them
But I kill dreams in the chase
I slap love in the face
Ricochet in time to the music
You just pick a day and I'm in
A new destination
I crawled up from the sewer
For something that was truer
Than I intended
I ended up on my knees
In this big city I was befriended
I transcended
But I bruise my friends for more
I rail at heaven's door
Ricochet in time to the music
You just pick a day and I'm in
A new destination
