Time Can't Fly a Plane

I saw you at the airport
Sitting on the carousel
You were waiting to be chosen
From the menagerie of shells
Oh what a strange tradition
How can you fly so well
If you take along your baggage

You said your number one advantage
Was playing piano with your toes
And when I asked what it was good for
You said you didn't know
Then you cried over the question
You hadn't thought of that before
You knew that it meant something more

Let me go back let me go back
Go back to the day I was born day I was born
'Cause I'm only getting older
But time can't fly a plane

I heard you climbed the highest mountain
So you'd be close enough to pray
But if you fall off of your mountain
You will go with God today
But if he turns you into a bird
Then you could just fly away
Oh wouldn't that be something
Would you be better off that way?

But a bird is a word a bird is just a word
Just like on the day I was born day I was born
And I'm only getting older
But time can't fly a plane

Over the ocean
See the pilot eclipse the sun
As if to say
"Oh time don't fly away"

Let me go back let me go back
Go back to the day I was born day I was born
'Cause I'm only getting older
But time can't fly a plane
Let me go back let me go back
Go back to the day I was born day I was born
Just leave me at the airport
Where time can't fly a plane

I saw you making phone calls
To the prisoner on the moon
He lost his way to find salvation
You lost your way to find salvation
