lyrics

I'm well on my way to eclipsing the moon
Should the let me come home, I'll take you
Are you sick? Are you tired of
Living inspired by love of a game?

They don’t let me see the sun ‘round here
Too much anymore
Keep me somewhere safe
Until I’m rotten to the core
And I don’t understand if I’m supposed to
Like it when they tell me
I’m so good at what I do...
How much sense does that make to you?

Baby dontcha know that brain of yours is overrated?
There’s a million carbon-copy-people glad to show ya how to make it
Oh, take it slow, put your hands down, try to simmer
Nothing half as big as Texas needs to sport another lonely Vineyard

My oh my, catch me if you can
I can learn to fly higher than you can

Sleeping on a rainstorm
Dancing on a cloud
I can touch the sky from here
And I can hear the crowd
And I’m under the impression that
You’re only half-rated to the ground
Are you afraid of falling down?
I’m scared of stalling out

Old Mister Sunshine’s smiling
A million miles away
Hey, I’m breaking out
Yeah, I’m escaping now
Fluorescent prison cells
Cardstock paper-chains
Nothing’s keeping me held down
I’m rolling out, you catch me if you can

My oh my, I’d die if life was nothing more
Than pushing pencils, life is short, friend
Catch me if you can!

This alarm clock is my favorite broken thing
I won’t be alive on time until it learns to sing
What’s it like to like to live inside a broken record now?
Shake a leg, boys and girls, I’LL SEE YOU IN SOCAL.

Old Mister Sunshine’s smiling
A million miles away
I miss him more each time I lie
Fluorescent prison cells
Cardstock paper-chains
I swear I’ll live until I die

I can fly! I can fly! (My oh my)
And don’t you try to stay me (Catch me if you can)
I know I’ll live ‘till I die (I can learn to fly)
Someday (My oh my)
We’ll take the sun and (I’d die)
You’ll know we’re born for the skies (If life was nothing more)

So,
Catch me if you can!
