lyrics

all our skywriting
f a l l i n g l e t t e r s
all our skydiving
f a l l i n g f e a t h e r s
in mutual extinction
all our forevers
the thing that links them
spirit of adventure

YOU'VE GOT NO BUSINESS AT ALL

to say 'Stop!' to the crane on its great migration
who says 'What?!' to the fellow in the radar station
to kick off at the monarchs in the pine plantation
as they lie in wait through their hibernation

the village looks so small from the air
and we're down there
a plane casts its shadow on the land
like a gesturing hand across exapanses of sand
when you touch back down you will understand
there's no final demands

... to scoff at the whales on the Spring vibration
on an ancient journey to the polar nations
you take a note and they'll add one on
sing along to the fractal song
the sea might echo when they're gone
sing along to the fractal song
