lyrics

If I had a little time, I'd put the universe in line
And I'd tear down the spheres of the world
Build a ladder to the sky
And if you dragged me back to bed
I'd just start babbling in blue and red
And I'd turn on MSNBC, watch people say what should be said

I'd watch a joint address
I'd watch my old boss walk the plank
Hourglasses start to crack
Everything I care about turns black
I stand back so I can see
It's all just a spectacle to me

Cause tomorrow floats like cotton clouds
While today still weighs like gold
And we'll forget how the story goes

We knocked on doors till evening fell
But never thought to ring the bell
Can't you just say yes or no,
Cotton or gold, open closed?
But don't leave me hanging I can
I can manage that myself

Now you're running circles around me
As I still sit here in DC
This game's not as fun on my own
But I know you're there

And the Hudson River's rising tonight
If you could see it, Pop
It'd be such a sight
Now I'm pulling on the drawbridge strings
But they're anchored to the ship beneath, don't move me
It's my right to let it go
It's my right to let things go

Cause tomorrow floats like cotton clouds
While today still weighs like gold
And we'll forget how the story goes

Cause tomorrow floats like cotton clouds
While today still weighs like gold
And we'll forget how the story goes
