Lyrics

When you wake up your day is blue and red and gold and gray
You are the notes within this song
The sun is shooting 'round, super sparkles spun eastbound
You are the dust within the dawn

Hey you, have another while we puzzle out this riddle
The queen will now receive her king
Hey you, have another while we try to balance in the middle
The dust inside this dawn does sing

The night will fall, children crying, fear they won't awaken
And then their souls get wiped clean
One thousand miles a second through the void you bought your ticket
You are a thought within a dream

Hey you, have another while we try to find some satisfaction
The queen will now relieve the king
Hey you, have another while we learn to make these new transactions
Begin by ending now you're free
Begin by ending now you're free

When you believe you're happy, all you think or love or need
Becomes the light in the sunbeams
You give it all away, the pendulum will swing and sway
You are the lesser god's daydream

Hey you, have another while we try to find some satisfaction
The queen will now relieve her king
Hey you, have another while we learn to make these new transactions
Begin by ending now you're free
Begin by ending now you're free

When you wake up your day is blue and red and gold and gray
You are the notes within this song
