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 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
