Riding my bike under the Mass Ave. Bridge and I'm staring at the cityscape. Seems like forever since we started this adventure and the days are getting shorter again. And so we ride, ride right over the wate, though some days I think I'd rather jump in. Below the buildings, they surround me like a blanket, and I wonder what is keeping me here.

Looking out and looking up for an answer but still nobody's making any sense. Finding quiet in the city's like a treasure and I never would have expected it here. They say eight stars are all you get, and I don't want to make the same mistake. Sometimes I wish this all would burn to the ground and we'd have to start all over again. Outro (1:20-1:39):
