  • 1. Adverb
  • 2. Let’s Incubus-ing
    I’m home alone tonight.Full moon illuminates my room, and sends my mind a flight.I think I was dreaming up some thoughts that were seeminglyPossible...with you.So I call you on the tin can phone.We rendezvous at a quarter-two, and make sure we’re alone.I may have found a way for you and I to finally fly free. **When we get there, we’re gonna go far away. Making sure to laugh; while we experience anti-gravity.
