Somedays nothing happens
You think nothing can
Somedays the morning slips from your hands
Elevated Plane
Elevated Plane

Not caring to struggle
Not to dash for the train
Not looking for trouble nor pain
Elevated plane
Elevated Plane

Neither hoping for sunshine
Or praying for rain
Not running in circles against the grain
Elevated plane
Elevated Plane

No exalted syntax
Busy straining your brain
Not reaching for heaven
Nor circling the drain
Elevated plane
Elevated Plane

No shadowy staircase
No cattle, no cane
Just a minor adjustment
Too simple to name
Elevated plane
Elevated Plane

Elevated Plane
Elevated Plane
Waiting out the false night
Staying up till first light
Shifting to some elevated Plane
