Departure Lyrics

Just arrived Singapore, San Sebastian, Spain, 26-hour trip

Salt Lake City, come in spring over the salt flats

A hailstorm brought you back to me

Salt Lake City, come in spring over the salt flats

A hailstorm brought you back to me

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes, bad

Departure, godspeed, bless his heart, good lord

What a fuck-up, what a fighter

Free-fall, motorcycle, hang-glider

Hung on the line like a poison spider

Win a eulogy from William Greider

A car crash, ptomaine, disposable lighter

A bus plunge, avalanche, RV, vinegar cider

Free-fall, motorcycle, hang-glider

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes, bad, bad

Go, go, go, go, yeah

Go, go, go, go, yeah

Go, go, go, yeah

Well, everybody is young forever

There's so much to tell you, so little time

I've come a long way since, uh, whatever

Shit, I still see that word and think of you

There is so much that I can't do, yeah

You will be young forever

There is so much that I can't do

There is so much that I can't do

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes, bad, bad

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes

(I'm carried away)

Here it comes, bad, bad
