lyrics

I packed my dreams in boxes
Crammed some hopes in duffle bags
I tied my aspirations up in a coil knot

My ideas are stuck in jars
I've got my visions on my closet floor
My principles are dangling from the front door's mail slot

But if we ignore the ceilings
We may finally be able to get some breathing room
If we ignore the ceilings
We'll awaken our long-lost feelings from their tomb

I have innovation up in the attic
Understanding in the safe on the wall
There's optimism hiding behind the curtains

There's ambition in the backyard
I keep my goals inside the drawers
Promises are currently en route to the furnace

Seeing is believing
And our view's constrained to tiles and paint
But that makes no difference if we propagate

'Cause if we ignore the ceilings
We may finally be able to get some breathing room
If we ignore the ceilings
We'll awaken our long-lost feelings from their tomb

If we ignore the ceilings
We may finally be able to get some breathing room
If we ignore the ceilings
We'll awaken our long-lost feelings from their tomb
