There's no beginning to the story
A bookshelf sinks into the sand
And a language learned and forgot, in turn
Is studied once again

It's a shocking bit of footage
Viewed from a shitty TV screen
You can squint at it through snowy static
To make out the meaning

And keep on stretching the antennae
Hoping that it will come clear
We need some reception, a higher message
Just tell us what to fear

'Cause I don't know what tomorrow brings
It's alive with such possibilities
All I know is I feel better when I sing
Burdens are lifted from me
That's my voice rising

So Michael, please keep the tape rollin'
Boys, keep strumming those guitars
We need a record of our failures
Yes, we must document our love

I've sat too long in my silence
I've grown too old in my pain
To shed this skin, be born again
Oh, it starts with an ending

So thank you friends for the time we shared
My love stays with you like sunlight and air
And though I truly wish I could keep hangin' around here
My joy is covering me
Soon I will disappear

It's not a movie
No private screenin'
This method acting
Well, I call that living, yeah

It's like a fountain
A door has opened
We have a problem with no solution
But to love and to be loved

So, I've made peace with the falling leaves
I see their same fate in my own body
But I won't be frightened when I'm awoken from this dream
And returned to that which
Gave birth to me

Gave birth to me
Gave birth to me
Gave birth to me

And the story goes
And the story goes

And it goes on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on

It's going on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on
It's going on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on and on
