lyrics

The sky was moving I swear I saw it
A flash of lightning a distant comet
The grass protects the insects beneath it
The wind howls like a wolf at night
The girls downstairs have a pillow fight
but I’m distracted by the yellow lights

Oh, mysterious
Oh, I’m serious
Oh, This universe
Mysterious
Oh, I’m serious
Oh, This universe is

I can hear the trees talk when I’m walking
they whisper words into my ear
As the city grows, they disappear
Tiny little speck splattered raindrops
Have fallen from the dark grey sky
I tilt my head up and wonder why

Oh, mysterious
Oh, I’m serious
Oh, This universe
mysterious
Oh, I’m serious
Oh, This universe is

We got a long way to go yet
Is this the wrong way to blow it
My mind is gone man I know it
I’m taking time from my schedule
Never feeling ready though
Got to get it off my chest heart is beating steady though
I'm breathing heavy oh, here we go
I got survivors guilt 'cause I got it kind of easy
And the world may be mysterious but it must want to see me
Be free and succeed cause these people need me
They please me and let me just be me 
They greet me and treat me and never get greedy
And I don’t think I’ll ever get it you feel me

Oh, mysterious
Oh, I’m serious, oh
Oh, mysterious
Oh, I’m serious
Oh, This universe is

Mysterious
I’m serious
This universe is
Mysterious
I’m serious
This universe is
