about

Written and recorded 2003. My second-ever song, and my first recording with live drums. It originally appeared on a disjointed collection confusingly titled Nowhere Man / Folkor in early 2004.

lyrics

High, I want to be high
High atop a mountain
I want to stare at the sun
And laugh in its face
I'll wait for the moon
Just to spite all the stars
Just to spite everyone
I'll stand at the cliff all day, all day long
I'll look at my feet and I know what I'll see
I'll see the moon, I'll see Mercury
It'll all be upside down, it'll be oh so pure

And I'll dream and I'll scream
And I'll be everything I ever wanted
I'll be me, I'll be you,
I'll be a little bit of everything

I'll taste like dust, I'll look like a tree
I'll be everything and so much more
I'll have it all, I'll be it all
I'll never look back
I'll swim in the sea and I'll be so free
I'll be everything and so much more
