Musical Waves and the Majestic Lightshow

by Nietzche

Sailing across weathered streets, darting through the smoky black night
Humming to the tune of the city and the melodic sing song voice of Owl City
All the while floating in billowing and wispy clouds, coughing and laughing and singing
Singing and Singing and Singing
Singing for the eternal brevity of youth and its spring
Singing for the reckless abandon which leads one to hidden pathways and magical adventures
And singing for the rollercoaster of time and the staccato of teenage naivety
Ascending now, our grey beetle mounts, the great bridge, mighty Atlas, who carries us on his shoulders
As we cross the vast river below
Rolling up we ascend this inclined bridge
Rising like a musical wave as Owl City climbs with us
And suddenly as we reach the apex, the peak, sunshine bursts through clouds
The city of lights on the river appears
Flashing lights, white lights, green lights, reds lights
Lights reflecting off the water and creating shimmering patterns as the river ripples
The smell of a spring night sifting through the open window
Melting with the burnt scent of marijuana and the odor of the river
This majestic lightshow and the chanting of Owl City
Sensory overload, feeling overload, beauty overload
Everything collides
The sky and the ground
The lights and the shadows
The bridge and the river
City and nature
Music apex, temporal apex, bridge apex
All collide
Everything becomes one thought, one feeling, one song
