don’t go believing that here and now is how it’s gonna stay
(i been thinkin’ of another way, i been gettin’ rid of yesterday)
don’t go believing a hand that holds itself is a fist
(you’ve always been an optimist, remember you’ve always been an optimist)

someday i will be reborn, someday i will be reborn
and the earth spins faster at its core, and the ground and sky each moving slower
a blind watchmaker’s semaphore

and someday i will be reborn, and someday i will be reborn
and the world is beautiful because it dies, or such is the design of human eyes
and sure as each ice age melts and dries

someday i will be reborn…
