[Verse 1]
Scared of losing all the time
He wrote it in a letter
He was a friend of mine

He heard you could see your future
Inside a glass of water
The ripples and the lines
And he asked, will I see heaven in mine?

That is just the way it was
Nothing could be better
And nothing ever was
Oh, they say you can see your future
Inside a glass of water
The riddles and the rhymes
Will I see heaven in mine?

[Chorus]
Son, don't ask
Neither half full nor empty
Is your glass
Cling to the mast
Spend your whole life living
In the past
Going nowhere fast


[Verse 2]
So he wrote it on a wall
The hollowest of halos
Is no halo at all

Television selling plastic
Figurines of leaders
Saying nothing at all
And you chime, stars in heaven align

[Chorus]

[Outro]
And what are we drinking when we're done?
Glasses of water
