    Lyrics

    [Verse 1 : Slug]
    It was a purple-purple sky and an orange-orange moon
    And everyone was whistling the same damn tune
    Except Brian, Brian staired out across the field
    And watch the horizon blossom to cop a field
    Over the edge of the world
    The one they're all afraid to walk
    Ration out the why they're so high on the small talk
    But Brian knows where the crows all go
    To find the if's, and the and's and the but's and also's

    Chorus:
    If I could run through the woods, and speed like the light
    I?d find the answers to why, and be back by tonight
    If I could fly through the fog and look at this rock
    I?d figure out how to keep Hell off of my block
    But as it stands, I stay content
    Tryin? to be the magic man, and pay my rent
    Wishing that Brian would turn me on to the secrets he sought
    While we keep burning the dawn, just to keep the day hot

    [Verse 2 : Slug]
    If I could ask you one question, I?d ask where you went
    You could teach me a lesson every time I got bent
    But the alcohol don't make me forget about it all
    doesn't matter the season the leaves can still fall
    They slipped hidden messages within the cards that were dealt
    I understand myself and all of the sorrow I felt
    For as simple as I'am how'd it get so complex
    Got me studying the margins and disregarding the text
    I open the curtins and listen to the traffic go
    But I still get nervous each time my peace passes go
    The residue is thick and the memory fails
    I still laugh 'cause the path feels a lot like a trail

    Chorus:
    If I could run through the woods, and speed like the light
    I?d find the answers to why, and be back by tonight
    If I could fly through the fog and look at this rock
    I?d figure out how to keep Hell off of my block
    But as it stands, I stay content
    Tryin? to be the magic man, and pay my rent
    Wishing that Brian would turn me on to the secrets he sought
    While we keep burning the dawn, just to keep the day hot

    [Verse 3 : Slug]
    We used to be a couple of pimps walking the hallways with pride
    Drunk or sober, life was nothing short of rollercoaster rides
    Trip to the clubs, now the skull to the rhythm
    All we wanted out of life was what was given
    And when you passed I wanted to take back the time we wasted
    I'd trade all the buzzes in for one more conversation
    We can sit in the shade and discuss the meaning of sacred
    Cause I can't see the garden no more, just the avens
    But the wind still blows and the plains still grow
    And I wish your name was on the guest list at my shows
    I got to believe you can see me run up on my freedom
    Cause you got to meet up with the son before you got to meet my son

    Bridge (x2):
    And when I see lightning, feels like my buzz is heightning
    Everytime I feel the sun, I can smell the love
    And when I smell the air I can hear a child trying
    But everytime I hear a river I think the mother is crying
