O tonight is the night is the night light Bring us all together now all together now Every time I say ok you can hear the echo Every time you send thought waves I can see the ocean Every time you say ok I know you can hear me Every time we say ok ok ok ok May the walls fall away may the walls fall away Down a dream hallway that would be ok Every time I say ok you can hear the echo Every time you send thought waves I can see the ocean Every time you say ok I know you can hear me Every time we say ok hello hello hello

Are you scared of the ways you might be right When the punch comes your way will you fight I couldn't guess I couldn't guess what the future features But when the day comes to rest you gotta make your light Is this it is this what gave me such a fright I've a set number of days and nights I wouldn't know don't wanna know what the future features So when the day comes to rest I gotta make my light

Secretly I think we need to think about eliminating language altogether It's the only way that I can see that what we say won't mean anything So let's agree To abandon that terminology By saying something inconsistent To abandon that terminology I'm saying something inconsistent

Everybody dies a lot and no one even thinks that's weird Everybody gets married and no one even thinks that's weird I'm gonna cut your crown off I'm gonna put it on my head and dance I'm gonna pluck your eyes out I'm gonna put them on my head and dance I'm gonna wed your mother I'm gonna put her on my head and dance I'm gonna drink some poison I'm gonna put it in my head and If you're coming from a battle and you meet three witches just walk away If your dead dad comes to visit you well no matter what he say just walk away If a man offers you a contract for a chunk of your flesh just walk away If your mother just walk away Walk away My old girlfriend dressed up as a boy to get a man and her best friend did the same to help the plan she's so smart, she's in Mensa and she won a Pulitzer but I think the joke is gonna be on her Fake beard fake beard, saw it from a mile away secret's safe with me, no I won't say let's go let's go back into the forest once again There's a guy I know, an actor, but he didn't act so well he's a donkey donkey cuz a spell was cast on him so that he would learn his lesson and shut up or a fairy king is not getting enough Fake ears fake ears, saw them from a mile away somehow he is drawing all the ladies let's go let's go back into the forest once again Shakespeare Shakespeare everybody dance now And no one even thinks that's weird

Hallway 03:45
When you die there's a hallway to the afterlife but first there's a door in the hallway inside is a room with a computer On the computer is a blog on the blog you're required to read everything that everyone said about you when you weren't there Some of it is nice and some of it is not so nice some of it is shocking and some of it is dull some of it is video and some handwritten someone drew a picture of you when you were 7 years old someone tried to rat you out when you were 13 years old someone was in love with you when you were 16 years old and you never knew Someone looked into your eyes before you were making memories Someone couldn't remember your name someone wanted you to shut up someone wished you'd die when you cut them off in traffic they all get their wish Someone couldn't believe that you would eat that someone stood up for you when no one else did someone had the most bizarre fantasy about you maybe you don't wanna know about it Someone thought your shirt was really stupid someone thought your shirt was awesome someone was in love with you when you were 43 and 46 You thought no one read the thing you wrote you thought no one heard the song you sang you thought no one noticed you when you were really trying and you went to sleep feeling so alone Someone was in love with you when you were 81 and you never knew
