It's not about the destination Could dock at any new station No journey's end to stop the ride Just wanna see what we can find We'll make it up there, get away We'll sail the ocean milky way I'll close the airlock, you raise the mast An eager countdown, then avast So cross the Lite-Brite sky with me Aurora boreality We'll swab the decks of space debris Unfurl the sails in zero G Freeze-dried ice cream and mugs of Tang We plundered from Neptune's domain "Come on down," they told me then I was a kid of only ten They wanted me to go to bed I climbed onto the roof instead It's not about the destination Could dock at any new station No journey's end to stop the ride Just wanna see what we can find Discover each star system's charms Orbit to sleep in the moon's arms See comets graze the starboard bow Forget tomorrow, live for now Climb to the crow's nest, up the rope Watch from our fun-size Hubble scope Check the star charts for hidden lands Abandoned loot and Tom's tin can Connect the dots from you to me Aurora boreality We'll swab the decks of space debris Unfurl the sails in zero G Freeze-dried ice cream and mugs of Tang We plundered from Neptune's domain Discover each star system's charms Orbit to sleep in the moon's arms See comets graze the starboard bow Forget tomorrow, live for now So cross the Lite-Brite sky with me Aurora boreality Connect the dots from you to me Aurora boreality

Too hard by far, so so far, never even tried Wine glass of Smirnoff by my side, saying not to hide Rocking the mic, more like the mic rocking me I'll push on through until I finally break free from Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) Now's not the time to back down! Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) They're gonna run you uptown! Just swing the bat, clutching at the neck of my guitar Feel like a kid on the roof facing a falling star No way to triumph without knocking this out of the park I'll write the way to win my very own story arc No need for passion 'cause it's fashion'ble to phone the thing in Gets so intense voicing dissent with lyrical kingpins in Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) Now's not the time to back down! Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) They're gonna run you uptown! Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) Think someone just threw a punch! Stage Fright City! (Stage Fright City) Tryin' not to lose my lunch!

I'm early twenties and I barely recognize my face They say I grew up, but I think that I just grew in place Keep playing Punchbug 'cause I've never gotten in a fight It's not my bedtime until right around the time it gets light Skipping breakfast every morning Drinking coffee close to black Overdrawn but overdriven Tell the world I'll pay it back I want to explore I want a pirate crew I want to stay up late and build treehouses with you We'll sit on statues We'll count red cars I'll draw a treasure map and put the X where you are It's hard to keep up when nobody set the bar for us Still playing the games that they taught us in back of the bus I can't be sure if being mature's worth all the bother Keep treading lightly 'round sore subjects like the floor was lava I want to explore I want a pirate crew I want to stay up late and build treehouses with you We'll sit on statues We'll count red cars I'll draw a treasure map and put the X where you are I want to play tag I want to lose I want to eat Fruit Gushers and then turn your tongue blue I'm early twenties and I barely recognize my face They say I grew up but I think that I just grew in place No need for reasons Except that it's fun Can't miss your closed-eyed grin through the scope of my Nerf gun We've crashed the party Played hide and seek I've watched you walk on walltops, cursed myself for being meek I want to explore I want a pirate crew I want to stay up late and build treehouses with you We'll sit on statues We'll count red cars I'll draw a treasure map and put the X where you are

No time to speak my mind An opening is hard to find But when I get my head on straight, I'll leave that all behind Some day I'll find proof That I'm worthwhile and tell the truth Until then I'll just enjoy the devil days of youth, what's there to lose? Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, never knows when to quit it Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, adapted screenplay Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, never knows when to quit it Never knows best, never knows best I'm not as clever as I think I am Always had it, this bad habit In the past, forgotten and fine Barely going, rarely knowing What to do to keep it in line I can't even find a reason To sail across this sea of landmines Far too future-obsessed Leaving others unimpressed Acting on self-confidence mistook for common sense Days go on and on Eventually they'll all be gone Once that comes I'll have to like the self-portrait I've drawn, can't see beyond Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, never knows when to quit it Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, supporting actor Never knows best, never knows best Never knows best, never knows when to quit it Never knows best, never knows best I'm not as meta as I think I am Hard to make a choice When you don't know your own voice Sometimes you've just gotta wing it, forget all their noise In tune and in time The right reasons will lead to rhyme With rhythm tight, the perfect chords can lay out your design
