about

Whenever we were bored in class back in 2nd year, and our minds began to wander, a lyric or two may have happened to make their way into our psyches, prompting us to jot them down wherever was convenient. Fast-forward to 4th year: we had a pretty cool vintage-sounding guitar riff (the one that opens the tune) and needed some lyrics to put to it. Back we went to our undergraduate notes for inspiration and, after a very productive video-chat-play-sing session, ended up with this somewhat metaphysical somewhat geophysical tune.

lyrics

While I was tearing leaves off a four leaf clover,
I thought I died, and the world started over.
While I was staring at stars in an endless sky,
I thought I died and the world passed by.

And somewhere in this crazy thing
Is something worth imagining.
They tell me I'm believing it,
But it's not worth a single thing.

So I took a walk down Fifth Avenue.
I thought I died, and the world looked just like you
So I took a ride in my 1960 Chevrolet.
I thought I died, and the world got in the way.

And somewhere in this crazy thing
Is something worth imagining.
They tell me I'm believing it,
But it's not worth a single thing.
