Well, I was out in the garden picking some mushrooms for my salad while listening to the Close to the Edge Album by Yes. I think I picked the wrong ones. Sorry about that.


I sure am glad I had those Xtra styles on hand though.

Long Distance Runner
By David Snyder

Prologue (The Delirium):

Blue Haze, Summer
Long Distance Runner
Blue Phase, Summer
Long Distance Runner

Verse 1

Think fast, moon blast
Seagrass, long past,
Love right, hang tight
Seems right
Light dust, moon rust
Clock out of water, clock of order
Mariner’s daughter


Twist and shout
Cool haze of summer
Blue haze of summer
See past the border
Ring flash, sea splash
Twist and shout
Cool haze, cool haze,
Cool haze of summer
See past the border
Long Distance Runner
Knights of the Order
Long Distance Runner


There is no dark side of the sun
It’s dark for everyone
Into the water
Long Distance Runner
Learn past, run fast, seagrass
Ten past the corner
Long Distance Runner


Learn past, run fast, seagrass
Ten past the corner
Long Distance Runner
Long Distance Runner

Epilogue (The Redemption)
Think tall, see small
Run for the border
Run for the border
Long Distance Runner
