Ice age, heat wave, can't complain If the world's at large, why should I remain? Walked away to another planet Gonna find another place, maybe one I can stand I move on to another day To a whole new town with a whole new way Went to the porch to have a thought Got to the door and, again, I couldn't stop You don't know where and you don't know when But you still got your words and you got your friends Walk along to another day Work a little harder work another way Well uh-uh, baby, I ain't got no plan Well I float on, maybe would you understand? Gonna float on, maybe would you understand? Well I float on, maybe would you understand?
The days get shorter and the nights get cold I like the autumn but this place is getting old I pack up my belongings and I head for the coast It might not be a lot but I feel like I'm making the most The days get longer and the nights smell green I guess it's not surprising but it's spring and I should leave
I like songs about drifters, books about the same They both seem to make me feel a little less insane Walked on off to another spot I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want Did I want love? Did I need to know? Why does it always feel like I'm caught in an undertow?
The moths beat themselves to death against the lights Adding their breeze to the summer nights Outside water like air was gray I didn't know what I had that day Walk a little farther to another plan You said that you did, but you didn't understand
I know that starting over's not what life's about But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth My thoughts were so loud, I couldn't hear my mouth My thoughts were so loud, ah

Steven from Clayton, NcI agree with the ties to Float On, Ian. I've felt many times that this album tells a sort of story. Not just the obvious story of Brock, but also a sort of vague bit of fiction, if you look at the songs in a more literal sense. I've actually been trying to figure out what exactly that story is so I can try to tell it more precisely. But for that, I think I'd need Brock's help. Which I don't. Thus, the story won't really be told.
Adam from South Pasadena, Israelsong is insanely deep. the music is very simple so you can concentrate on what the lyrics are telling you, to only stop when you are satisfied and to live your own standards only
Ian from Larksville, PaI think this song only reminds you that you're just a speck in the world. He refers to Ice Age, Heat Waves, and not being able to complain. He also repeats "Gonna float on baby, don't you understand". It ties very well with the song "Float On". It goes from talking about the inability to control the world around you. But even at its worst, life can still clear up.
