All Caps (Grounded Version)

We were driving down from mercury when the radio broke
You were such a goddamn long way from home
I kicked the dashboard hard 29 times and turned every knob
For a second there was static until there was not

I never saw so many stars at night when i still lived on earth
Nobody down there tells you being lost out here's got its perks
Sat by the side of the road to take a breath
Told you sometimes i dream that your ribcage caves in on your heart

And i wake up in a cold sweat
I suppose this is what you get
When you train your brain to be an acrobat
And the last thing i ever said to you was your name in all caps

I’d like to meet you again at the personal space bar for a glass of lemonade
I can sit on the other side of the room with my numbers about mortality rates
Got coins for the jukebox, i heard they got some classic static
I’ll pretend that i can dance to this, it's nothing short of magic
They can say what they want bout pushing up daisies, i've been seeing a lot of you lately
Mostly in other people's faces, the ways they move through crowded spaces.
What's closer, jordan or styx?
Dive down for the heck of it
It's all just water, it's warmer than i expected
Connect, connect, connect.

And i wake up in a cold sweat
I suppose this is what you get
When you train your brain to be an acrobat
And the last thing i ever said to you was your name in all caps
In all caps.
