Nightswimming


night swimming

night swimming

 

now's the time to pantomime you're way to sleep

your dreams get goin'

life's a coin

 

(now flip it)

 

down around that roundabout you're counting sheep

you snooze along

life's a song

 

(now sing it)

 

you tread water long enough

to see your son and daughter strong and tough

 

(men and women)

you feel sonic splendor move

into your deep sub­conscious and your thoughts improve

 

(nightswimmin')

 

just float along

you’re goin’ where you've gone a thousand times it won't be wrong

 

(nightswimming)


 

idolize those vitalizing eyes and feet

the vision's clear

the movement's here

 

(you love it!)

 

nevermind that passing time, it's never been

all is none

none's a ton

 

(I feel it)

 

you've learned lessons time and time again

lessen the rest of those messages they can't be sent

you've failed the best of those tests and yes you can repent

for things you meant to do differently it never ends

 

(start over)

 

just float along

you’re goin’ where you've been a thousand times it won't be wrong

you've got the gist, yea

you've never missed a thing, now have you? are you feeling stronger?
