in the parking lot where the sun cooks the rocks dry
there's a hopscotch drawn
that's gone unused since you were five
and on the chain link fence there are vines growing to the sky
but you don't climb that now
you've got a key to the other side

and you go "la, da, da, la, da, da, da"

there's a school bus stop right outside of your window
where the kids line up
one of them's your next van Gogh
but you will never know and that's just the way it's gotta be
away the school bus goes
chasing the lights down the city streets

and they all go "la, da, da, la, da, da, da"

well a goodnight is hard to find
when you're out there on your own
and when the lights turn out
you'll finally see that everyone's alone
and even though we are like each other
we are standing separately
we're like prisoners who are chained together
different reasons to be free
and a goodbye is harder
because it means that it's the end
but just because that one thing's over
doesn't mean one can't begin
and it's difficult to think that way
when your time is running out
and the paramedic on your chest
you can hear the people shout:

"don't let go"

it's been twenty years, revolutions around the sun
and things still aren't clear
you aren't sure what you have become

so you go "la, da, da, la, da, da, da"
