I smiled at her and then just walked away
Then the lights came on and it was over

A hidden meaning known to everyone
A slight misconception of leizure
Don't see how that could hurt anyone I know but
Spirit, excellence, further down the road,

These are the tools you'll need further down the road
So lets pack it up and take it somewhere special
From a quintessential, existential nightmare
To a sanctuary waiting in the sun
