lyrics

Further down San Simeon, walking by the ocean,
A strange sound reached my ears, beckoning me.
The green dunes echoed with shouts of ecstasy,
And I came upon a party, of skeletons in finery.

Moving to a steady beat, crashing trumpet & tambourine,
Their counterpoint haunting & deep, as night fell upon a blackened sea.

Oh, lighter & lighter, Come float above the ties that hold you down.
Oh, higher and higher, rising until our feet don’t touch the ground.

A nobleman spoke to me,
with tears in his eyes.
Of stories countless as the stars,
and truth laced with lies.
A bright-eyed girl took my hand,
and we danced until dawn.
And as first light came, the on-shores breathed anew,
and she turned to dust in my arms.

Oh, lighter & lighter, Come float above the ties that hold you down.
Oh, higher and higher, rising until our feet don’t touch the ground.

Gimme one more chance & I’m gon’ shake it loose,
To the break of day I ain’t got nothin’ to lose. Here we go
Gimme one more chance & I’m gon’ make it right,
To the break of day fill up my appetite. Here we go…

Oh, lighter & lighter, Come float above the ties that hold you down
Oh, higher and higher, rising until our feet don’t touch the ground
Oh don’t hesitate now, no, for you will join them in the end
Oh faster and harder, yeah, it don’t make a difference

Gimme one more chance, gimme one more chance.
