Story behind the song
to celebrate being old enough to rent your own balloon without parental consent.
My gondola rides into the maw of the moon
Lighter than air, with a windswept view of Neptune.
Life on land's like a Rube Goldberg cartoon.
Come tie a Gordion knot to your own Brigadoon.
The sky is wide and communes with the heat of us all.
Some are feathered to fly, some are tethered to crawl, or fall.
I'll drop the ballast as our hot air envelope swoons
We'll top the trees in our floating granfalloon.
