Travelers Welcome

The pianos are all moving at their own speed.
They’re going from one place to another.
And when they get to the one place, they can’t stay very long.
So they have to keep moving.
People wave at the pianos but it doesn’t slow them down.
Nothing seems to slow them down, in fact,
And when somebody says he thinks they’re slowing down,
we know that he’s a fool.
And everybody’s a fool who shares the same opinion.
When you see a piano that’s moving away from you,
the best thing to do is to get out of the way.
Don’t try to be a hero about it and get it to stop.
Let the people listening to it be the heroes.
Let the notes, as they surround you with a feeling of wonder,
acclimate the movement of your senses
and move mountains to a place you can live.
