For just this moment

Let's change our names and rewrite history

To our own liking

From fighting crime to solving mysteries

Create a future

That doesn't suck and isn't ruled by greed

Where we can lie in the grass

Kick off our shoes and smoke a little weed

I've put a lot of thought in

And I'm dizzy from the shots, you know

This world's spinning beneath us

and there's nothing that should keep us

From enjoying it together

Have you seen such lovely weather?

Please don't let my mindless banter frighten you away...

How about this instead?

The future's where it's at

I mean, come on!

We'll take a space flight

To sneak a peek on Planet Orbulon

Plus, not to mention,

Think of all the gadgets there will be!

Can you say jetpacks?!

Just stick with me, we'll blend in perfectly

It's never too late

To douse our past in leaded gasoline

Send it up in flames

I'm speaking from the heart, I'm coming clean
