The Paper Airplane Song

This song is by Imaginary Friend and appears on the album Hurtin' For Certain (1990).

Why do you like to see me falling
Off the world in such a way?
I'm not a bird or a paper airplane
To crumple up or throw away

Why do you like to turn the tables
Break the back of modern time?
Mother Earth lies softly begging
"Don't drown your sorrows in my wine"

Climb a pole and up a tree
Hung from the limbs that harbor me
A final line to be confused
With blood or proof, the sky will choose

It's nine o-clock, I'm busted here
There's country music in my ear
I seek it all, these parcel prize
The trees are saying better times
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Why do you strike the match of reason
Burn the candle at both ends
Stoke the fire that heats desire
Break the mold that never bends?

Why do you save your worthless money
Buying joy, buying friends?
Shallow hearts and insane logic
Whoever dies with more toys wins

Come one, would you bounce it in my face
Well, in the top dead cities in the distant place?
Until ya stood from here to there
Souls are tapped out everywhere
Well, I need new hands, they're minor blue
In this stage, this social group
It's time to sleep upon the sky
And dream of life in days gone by

Why do your eyes burn red with fire
Itchy feet and buttons glow?
While children die like bloated cattle
The war will live, but light must go

Why do you search for final power
When love will turn a thousands heads?
Who cries for this shadowed message?
T.V. watchers, turn your heads

Come one, would you bounce it in my face
Well, in the top dead cities in the distant place?
Until ya stood from here to there
Souls are tapped out everywhere
Well, I need new hands, they're minor blue
In this stage, this social group
It's time to sleep upon the sky
And dream of life in days gone by

Dream of days gone by
Dream of days gone by
Dream of days gone by, by, by, by
Days gone by
Days gone by
Days gone by
Days gone by, by, by, by
Days gone by
Days gone by
Days gone by
Days gone by, by, by, by
Days gone by

Why do you like to see me floating
Upon the world in such a way?
I'm not a bird or a paper airplane
To crumple up or throw away

Why do you like to turn the tables
Break the back of modern time?
Mother Earth lies softly begging
"Don't drown your sorrows in my wine"

Come one, would you bounce it in my face
Well, in the top dead cities in the distant place?
Until ya stood from here to there
Souls are tapped out everywhere
Well, I need new hands, they're minor blue
In this stage, this social group
It's time to sleep upon the sky
And dream of life in days gone by

Dream of days gone by
Dream of days gone by
Dream of days gone by, by, by, by
Days gone by
Days gone by
Days gone by, ow, ow, ow-ow
Days gone by
