The sunspot marks my place in this room.
Just gather 'round in a circle.
I build a fire, I'll make flowers bloom.
Open your eyes while I try it.
You never noticed I was here the whole time,
gathering all of the details.
Now you see me. I'm larger than life.
Too bad you're late to the party.

I have written the flight plan.
I've made peace with my soul.
I am over the ocean,
far from the coast.

I dig the takeoff. The sky is so blue.
Finally my head has gone quiet.
This loneliness has got a strength of its own.
No hazards where I'm flying.
They'll never touch me. they'll never pull me down.
I've got more forces in hiding.
You might be clever, but you're not built to last.
No, not in this weather.

I live in "fight or flight".
Survival's all I've got.
No parachute, no safety net.
My adversaries place their bets.

I have written the flight plan.
I've made peace with my foes.
I am over the ocean,
far from the coast.
