lyrics

A see saw lets you float up

The water lets you slide

One after another

Get in line for the other side

And your time is up

Put away your tin cup

Breathe in the sweet air

And take it in and feel it there

It's alien

Good times

Just teach yourself the subjects

The moons are in your reach

Get out your favorite colors

Give all your sands a beach

And your time is up

Put away your tin cup

Breathe in the sweet air

And take it in and feel it there

It's alien

Good times

The ocean's getting deeper

From the drains you had to waste

The desert's just a little colder

From the nights you tried to chase

When you taste the bitter

Taste that they left behind

Sip your favorite water

Refresh whats in your mind
