[Verse 1]
A hundred-eighty days go by of constant topple on the page
Fill it with words until it falls further gone and outta reach
Faster, faster it goes on and I'm stuck mud as turtles pass
But give me time and open page, and I'll learn the books beyond my age

[Chorus]
But there's one thing, and overtone of rain
Pick me up and out of me
Soon as I can see the rain
Out the door into the trees, I can hear my thoughts again
Half across the world and back nostalgia's come to take a hit
I say hit me till I'm lit, with a light that takes my mind back home

[Verse 2]
Look to the left and all's gone lit with signs that say I've made it through
Out of school into the sky I go and fly beyond my own
Look to the right and I'm still stuck in chains that keep me from myself
Complete with symbols I can't read that mathematicians live and breath

[Chorus]
But there's one thing, and overtone of rain
Pick me up and out of me
Soon as I can see the rain
Out the door into the trees, I can hear my thoughts again
Half across the world and back nostalgia's come to take a hit
I say hit me till I'm lit, with a light that takes my mind back

[Bridge]
But there's one thing, and overtone of rain
Pick me up and out of me
Soon as I can see the rain
Out the door into the trees, I can hear my thoughts again
Half across the world and back nostalgia's come to take a hit
I say hit me till I'm lit, with a light that takes my mind back home

[Outro]
Back home
