  • Well I'd snap to attention
    If I thought that you knew the way
    I'd open my mouth
    If I had something smart to say

    I bought a stack of books
    I didn't read a thing
    It's like I'm sitting here
    Waiting for birds to sing

    Let's do it again
    Come on, let's do it again
    Please, let's do it again

    The hum of the clock
    Is a faraway place
    The azalea air holding your face
    You're lying down

    And the moon is sideways
    From the hot to the cold
    It never gets old

    I spend all my energy
    Staying upright
    And I like the masking noise quiet
    Of your breathing nearby

    I want you lazy science
    I want some peace
    Are you the future?
    Show me the keys

    When I accelerate
    I remember why it's good to be alive
    Like a twenty-five cent game

    Maybe this weight was a gift
    Like I had to see what I could lift

    I spend all my energy
    Walking upright Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
