I built a staircase to the stars / and if you'll hold my hand / we could walk up to the dark that they divide // It's kind of like the spaces / that we drift between / like boats pointed toward islands of light // I won't ask any questions / You don't have to say a word / we will be like an answer / they've never heard // Looking into the water / the stars shake like candle lights / lit under the surface at night // Are you hiding under there? / my vision is so impaired / I can't read the expression on your face // Won't you throw me a bone / something I can hold on to / like a doorway that could hold my eyes in place // I won't ask any questions / you don't have to say a word / we'll unlock the cryptic answers / forgotten at birth // Ascending to the top / we'll step off the highest stair / and fall into the darkness gathered there // It's kind of like the water / you swam in late that night / while I watched from the dock in the moonlight // Sinking deeper down / like bullets shot in the ground / we'll float like sweet vertigo in flight // You can ask me any questions / I'll answer all without a word / meaning like buried seeds of birds / from the earth will sing //
