Halfway there I’m halfway there,
can’t you feel the air around you, charged and static?
I’m in stop-start motion, charged with emotion,
I’m in the ether, the world beneath here.

Certain people think it just a joke flying here and there because we’re always broke but up here... time’s suspended, the world’s upended above the weather storms the sun shines on us.
Look out the turbulent days; look out the turbulent skies, hold your breath until the sky rights itself, the clouds fall away.
Look out temptation pays no heed to adventurers like us Like us... Like us...
Maybe there, isn’t anywhere where we both exist maybe I blinked and missed it maybe one day I’ll turn around
in case I’ve lost too much ground; in case time runs out faster than any happy ever after.
Halfway there, in the air...
