  Riding my bike under the Mass Ave. Bridge and I'm staring at the cityscape.
  Seems like forever since we started this adventure and the days are
  getting shorter again. And so we ride, ride right over the wate, though
  some days I think I'd rather jump in. Below the buildings, they surround me
  like a blanket, and I wonder what is keeping me here.

  Looking out and looking up for an answer but still nobody's making any
  sense. Finding quiet in the city's like a treasure and I never would have
  expected it here. They say eight stars are all you get, and I don't want to 
  make the same mistake. Sometimes I wish this all would burn to the
  ground and we'd have to start all over again.
