about

This song is about hesitation

lyrics

Old Mr. Tolliver never really thought of her
But saw her image on the picture poster at the opera
She had had a dream to chase and spent her whole life
Beating it down
Man, she must be so relieved that some day they're going to bury her
Wearing a crown

She looked like a beauty queen, like a diva, super-mean
She kept her posture flawless and regardless looking super-clean
But she was also miserable and let her talents wander around

So what's the Point of steering clear
If I can make it in this single place year after year
I can sit, and I can chase, and I can run

Open a window or open the door
Is the grass really green anymore

But I only have the current time and space
I think I'd like to go some other place
But here I get to go at my own pace
I only have the current time and place in space

She always liked the charm of living on a tiny farm
But Farmer John just wants to move some other place
Like super-warm
Javier in Mexico just dreams of getting out of here someday
Clarantina who got out really wants to find a cushy job
And get super-paid

Her boss's boss's boss's boss's boss could buy anything
But when he looks down at the Hoi polloi he just wants everything
Well they say the higher that you climb it's the farther you fall

Old Mr. Tolliver only wants to talk to her
He fantasizes trying to rebuild his broken life with her
Takes his money from the bank to buy a ticket next to the stage
Yeah he cleans up pretty nice for an older guy who's getting way on
In older age

He tracks her down after the show, living in the afterglow
As usual, performance was enormous
"Yeah I think I know,"
She said - "It was super-nice to catch up with you,
But I've really got to go"

So what's the Point of steering clear
If I can make it in this single place year after year
I can sit, and I can chase, and I can run

Open a window or open the door
Is the grass really green anymore

But I only have the current time and space
I think I'd like to go some other place
But here I get to go at my own pace
I only have the current time and place in space

What's the point of a Mystery Dimension
Unexplored never got any attention
What's the point of a Mystery Dimension
I might see you there
