lyrics

See the people leaning on each other in the terminal
They're waiting in a line to buy a ticket to get where they're going
And they're always tired because their clocks are set to a different time zone
They hope their baggages won't leave them all alone I'm with them

Flying a plane I'm flying a plane
Up through the clouds and over the rain
I'm spilling my juice but I don't mind the stain
Cause I'm flying a plane I'm flying a plane

Me I've got a window seat, I'm staring at the tiny people
Riding tiny cars I think I see you in the yard
The movie's over and the stewardess asks me what I want to drink
I order, eat my food and relish every little turbulence because I'm

Flying a plane I'm flying a plane
Can't wait until I do it again
It's a kind of candy for my brain
Cause I'm flying a plane I'm flying a plane

Flying a plane I'm flying a plane
Up through the clouds and over the rain
I'm spilling my juice but I don't mind the stain
Cause I'm flying a plane I'm flying a plane

about

Douglas Chay Baltimore, Maryland

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
