This is where we learn to fly
The place up here where no one can die
This is where we learn to see
Past arrogance, anger and petty needs

Little things like that have dragged us down
Down further than hell, down past the ground
Little things like that make us bleed
From our ears and badly scraped knees

So joyful were we in the age of innocence
It was not terrible nor great for those who lived in ignorance
So joyful did we sing on high
We forgot for a moment the things of sadness and darkened skies

And then you pasted a smile on your face
Laughing at the confronting doom and bitter taste
And then you passed me a banquet of purple daisies
I knew what they stood for: our love is crazy

Those purple daisies stand for love
For a reason to stay in the gold above
Those purple daisies stand for truth
For anything other than lies uncouth

Purple daisies in the sun
They flatter and blink and look down to no one
Purple daisies under the blanket of night
Their mission is to bring surprise and delight

This is where we learn to fly
The place up here where no one can die
This is where we know we're safe
From everything but us, but together, even that we can face
