Next time I think I'll take the mental plane
Instead of the train of thought
Hopefully touch down
In a state in my mind, but I'll leave the mental baggage in the crib
All of these are a play on words. Since this song is about going to memory lane, a place in one’s mind, it is only right to take these metaphorical methods of travel such as the “train of thought”
Next time he’s going to take the plane the more impersonal method. He’s going to view his past from up high without getting too emotional or caught up in it. This way he also avoids the bad memories.
