  • We cut the legs off of our pants
    Throw our shoes into the ocean
    Lay back and wave through the daylight
    Sit back and wave through the daylight

    Slip and slide on subway grates
    These shoes are poor mans ice skates
    Fall through like change in the daylight
    Fall through like change in the daylight

    I miss yellow lines in my roads
    Some color on monochrome
    Maybe I'll paint them in myself
    Maybe I'll paint them in myself

    These sidewalks liquid then stone
    Building walls and an old pay phone
    It rings like all through the daylight
    It rings like all through the daylight

    And in the daylight we can hitchhike to Maine
    I hope that someday I'll see without these frames
    And in the daylight I don't pick up my phone
    'Cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home

    I have five clocks in my life
    And only one has the time right
    I'll just unplug it for today
    Ill just unplug it for today

    Open hydrant rolled down windows
    This car might make a good old boat
    And float down grand street in daylight
    And float down grand street in daylight

    And with just half of a sunburn
    New yellow lines that I earned
    Step back and here comes the night time
    Step back and here comes the night time

    And in the daylight we can hitchhike to Maine
    I hope that someday I'll see without these frames
    And in the daylight I don't pick up my phone
    'Cause in the daylight anywhere feels like home
