    Everyday I'm learning the strangest things
    About my dreams
    About my dreams

    Turns out they're not a movie
    Turns out they're not starring me
    But bouncing on my knee --
    The greatest mystery.

    The universe expanded
    Bloomed from a tiny seed
    Became this breathing thing
    The rest is history

    The rest is history, oh oh oh
    the rest is history.

    Love is like a ladle
    providing all we need
    from an endless sea
    of empathy

    When Satan Saw Inside The Cradle
    he turned into a bird
    lost all his wicked words
    lost all his wicked words

    The universe expanded
    smoothed out his furrowed brow
    Oh, don't ask me how.
    don't ask me how!

    The universe expanded
    bloomed from a tiny seed
    because this breathing thing.
    The rest is history.

    For Jonathan, my brother, Xi, Jeff, and Sky, and for Maggie.
