Won't you look up at the skyline, at the mortar block and glass
And check out the reflections in my eyes
You see they always used to be there even when this all was grass
And I sang and danced about a high rise

    "And it's really not that you can't see The forest from the trees You just never been out in the woods alone" might be the greatest lyric Ben Folds has ever written, imo.

    I agree with you guys about it is about a guy who followed his philopsophy despite what other people said, but the real humurous part is the fact he is forcing and believing its the philosophy for all his friends. The lyrics are funny

    "I've seen that there is evil, and I know that there is good. But, the inbetweens, I've never understood" might be the greatest lyric Ben Folds has ever written, imo.

    Bonekhan, yes! As a huge fan of Gershwin, I was excited to hear the reference.
