LyricSong Title
Before you fall, you have to learn to crawl/ You can't see heaven when you're standing tall
Hitting every pocket on my shirt, pants and overcoat/ And I'm hitting them again but I don't know where I put my notes
This is the way/ The talking part goes
We nix the glaben/ The knifey-knife is staben
And even though I can't explain it/ I already know how great it's gonna—yeah!
You took a sip and lost your place/ Three many windows shining back in your face
So that's why I'm writing this now/ And you can tell my sister the cow/ That I meant to thank her for the gorgonzola
See the hands of the grandfather clock unwinding/ see the hands of my offspring making windmills
Well the bellhop is funky/ the dumbwaiter’s a monkey
Don’t bother to call this room/ There’s nobody here who can pick up
I'm inspired by events/ To remember the exits in back of me
Grade on a curve/ And you'll observe/ I'm right below the horizon
So I'm rattlin' the bars around this drink tank/ Discreetly I should pour through the keyhole/ Or evaporate completely
This could lead to excellence/ Or serious injury
And you're nothing but air, with your hand in the air/ And your shoelaces tied up together with care
You said 'I'm gonna run you down'/ I heard 'I'm an orangutan'
Wake up and smell the cat food/ In your bank account
And the message they detect/ From across the Milky Way/ Says the aliens want to join us for lunch
LyricSong Title
May I direct your attention to the following simile?
Run around in the rain with a hole in the brain till tomorrow
I'd steal all the microphones/ From all the masters of ceremony
I didn't expect to find a salesman drinking coffee this late in the morning
So turn off your smoke machine/ And Marshall stack
Though I respect that a lot/ I'd be fired if that were my job/ After killing Jason off/ And countless screaming Argonauts
Ladies and gentlemen!
They don’t need me here, and I know you’re there
Now I'm done chewing my nails/ Hanging my head, chasing my tail
Somebody put their fingers in the President's ears/ It wasn't too much later they came out with Johnson's wax
The check’s in the mail, and I’ll see you in church, and don’t you ever change
My mind naturally turns to taxidermy
I don't know whether I'd rather be having a bottle of vinegar/ I don't know whether I'd rather be having an egg
I need some juice./ I got some juice.
Serve it with a shovel/ Or serve it on a spork
But they're like the people chained up in the cave/ In the allegory of the people in the cave by the Greek guy
Big hand’s on 120/ Little hand’s on E
But there it was in the aisle by the exit sign/ A woofer covered in wood/ To shake the womb when it should
