Lyrics

From one perspective it looks infected and from another it looks clean

From one angle it looks so tangled and from another so pristine

Well, I won’t suggest that I know just who’s at one point or the other now

In the middle it seems like a trampoline, up in the air it all goes ‘round

At a windy beach, walking in the sea, the maps and charts float off in the waves

Passing roadside vendors and old abandoned fenders, it would be good to get away

The future keeps replacing the now, where I once looked up, today I look down

And the road ahead will soon be my ground

This too shall pass, this too shall pass

I move from here to be over there, and when I’m there I’m thinking of here

And when I’m here I want to be there

This too shall pass, this too shall pass

Some perspective, it’s all subjective, from day to day, from thought to thought

Too many options, too many toxins, I’m a disconnected astronaut
