lyrics

The ringing in my ears is louder than before
I open up the window a little more
Decision over coffee that I want the end to change
And put my destination in range

There is no deeper meaning here, the story's yours to choose
Until I put it down there is something left to lose
It might seem like an arbitrary waste of my time
Or a temporary obstacle to climb

A circadian decision, to wake up, work, or play
Keeps apathetic tendencies away
It's an exercise in intellect, to channel waking dreams
And often more exhausting than it seems

There is no deeper meaning here, the story's yours to choose
Until I put it down there is something left to lose
It might seem like an arbitrary waste of my time
Or a temporary obstacle to climb

The ringing in my ears, gave way to the sound
of the elusive conclusion that I found
Pondered over coffee I finally made the change
And put the destination in range

There is no deeper meaning here, the story's yours to choose
Until I put it down there is something left to lose
It might seem like an arbitrary waste of my time
If it all amounts to nothing, it's still mine
