[CHORUS:
We’re feeling the ups and downs
Of success and defeat
Planting and watering the seeds
Seeking what we want – seeking what we need
We’re seeing life deeper than 3 – D
Realer than reality TV
We wear our hearts on our sleeves]

While someone was cutting up lines
I was on my way obeying all the signs
You got to watch out on these streets
They’re full of bouncing betties and land minds
The psycho, un-careful kind
On the highway, high-speed crash
The kind that brings slow – motion to time
The wheels are braking – the thoughts are rolling
What’s life made of?
What’d I do to stay here with the ones I love
Forgetting every second life was tough
And then it’s like an omen from up above
We’re dangling – from the ceiling
Flying like a Dove
Seatbelts are our wings
Sometimes a pat on the back can be like a shove
In the right direction we lean
Lasers are for – four eyes – correction
Life’s realer than the movie screen
Even when it’s in 3 – D
Although some people got more best DVD’s and obsessions
Than family ‘n friends in their collection
Sooner or later recollection is destined
Followed by destination affection
ETA – after you learn a lesson

[CHORUS]

Anybody know Espanol, French & Chinese
We have Dollars and cents to anyone who can translate
And scramble our letters into words in this melting pot earth
Hollering with sense – we’re living for the moments facing fate
Climbing to the top from the dirt like Transworld Surf
But we’re not your every day Taxi Cab Wave
Living each day like it’s a World Title Bout
Everything we say echoes from our Apartment Caves
Impossible to replicate, separate, we articulate as we shout
Brothers – getting grown like bald – getting flyer than eagle – boy scouts – our thoughts are Siamese
There’s another – that makes three
Younger we went a little Betta
Fighting for our right on a Spree
Stacking Legos on the doors to our dreams
We’ll never be goldfish swimming to the drain on a downward spiral from the tops of the trees
At times we will fall but we got these people – they’re our leaves
It’s easy to know, safer to grow when you wear your heart on your sleeve
Not listening what the cowards sing
‘Are they insane – what are they drinking – how far down is it from where they leap – I hope the water’s deep’
Yeah, we’re feeling the ups and downs
Of success and defeat
But we’re planting and watering the seeds
Seeking what we want – seeking what we need
We’re seeing life deeper than 3 – D
Realer than reality TV
While we wear our hearts on our sleeves

[CHORUS]
