The Tip Of The Iceberg
Owl City Lyrics


Welcome back
Winter once again
And put on your warm fuzzy sweater
Cause you'll feel much better when

The snowflakes fall
Gently to the ground
The temperature drops
And your shivers freeze all the rivers around
But I keep you warm

If speed's a pro
Inertia must be a con
Cause the cold wind blows at precise rates
When I've got my ice skates on

If all the roads
Were paved with ice that wouldn't thaw or crack
I could skate from Maine to Nebraska
Then on to Alaska and back
Cause you keep me warm

Peer over the edge
Can you see me?
Rivulets flow from your eyes
Paint runs from your mouth
Like a waterfall
And your lungs crystallize

I'll travel the sub-zero tundra
I'll brave glaciers and frozen lakes
And that's just the tip of the iceberg
I'll do whatever it takes
To change

Farewell powdery paradise
We'd rather skate on the thinnest ice
Fingers failed us before they froze
Frostbite bit down on all our toes

Snow drifts build up and enfold us
As we wait out this winter storm
So we snuggle close in the darkness
And keep each other so warm

Welcome back
Winter once again
And put on your warm fuzzy sweater
Cause you'll feel much better when

The snowflakes fall
Gently to the ground
The temperature drops
And your shivers freeze all the rivers around
But I keep you warm

If speed's a pro
Inertia must be a con
Cause the cold wind blows at precise rates
When I've got my ice skates on

If all the roads
Were paved with ice that wouldn't thaw or crack
I could skate from Maine to Nebraska
Then on to Alaska and back
Cause you keep me warm

Peer over the edge

Rivulets flow from your eyes
Paint runs from your mouth
Like a waterfall
And your lungs crystallize

I'll travel the sub-zero tundra
I'll brave glaciers and frozen lakes
And that's just the tip of the iceberg
I'll do whatever it takes
To change

Farewell powdery paradise
We'd rather skate on the thinnest ice
Fingers failed us before they froze
Frostbite bit down on all our toes

Snow drifts build up and enfold us
As we wait out this winter storm
So we snuggle close in the darkness
And keep each other so warm

This album should be considered a classic

Trent DeLisle

@Ethan Le hench the hello seattle song.

Trent DeLisle

@Ethan Le Minnesota but when he wrote this album he was living in Seattle.

Ethan Le

@Trent DeLisle I'm pretty sure he's from Iowa

Trent DeLisle

It is, he wrote all of this while he was in seattle living a very small life. Used to drive around on the freeway on a little dirtbike and worked at a cafe when he wrote the entire album.

This song could totally be a hit today. It's so catchy. Shame it's not more widely known like Fireflies.

@Cryo I love most of the deluxe edition songs. I was just talking about the standard release tho.

Cryo

@Ethan Le totally agree with this, and I always include 'Hot Air Balloon', probably the best track on deluxe edition.

@XxurnansflipflopxX the string of songs from meteor shower to tidal wave are incredible.
