Take this pill, my dear
It will keep you sharp and clear
The side effects won't last too long

It's stranger than it seems
In your most peculiar dreams
But it's nothing that won't fade with time

  Tuck the northern star in a candy jar
  And save it for a rainy day

    Shadows in the moonlight
    Always coming, always going
    While your cup is overflowing

    Shadows in the moonlight
    Just a matter of perspective
    It's all relative, subjective,
    It's alive

Stand up straight and tall
Keep your back against the wall
Remember what they said to you

A stranger in a crowd
A halo on a cloud
It's lost to you but it never really went away

  The muffled speech is out of reach
  But truth has got a way of breaking through


Take these words my dear,
And as they echo in your ears
It's closer than you think

    [Chorus x 2]
