Shark fins and bullshit
And I have no understanding of electronics
You are the dust, this town’s the dustpan
And I have no change for your dirty dry hands
Spray the nest down with the hose
And get the boys out of your nose

Think of the time when you stood up straight
There was always food on your plate
And I’m out of here, I’m out of here
Don’t pick up a bomb
A tattoo on her thumb
And I owe something to no one
Owe something to no one

You stay here, I’ll go get help
Why should it matter, to anyone else

She cried ‘cause I acted like a fool,
So I stole her tears and used them as fuel for my machines
That make nectarines and ingredients found in monkey chow

Had a dream, I was a beekeeper, and all my bees, they were friends with me
They never bit
They never stung
They talked with me
A few of them sung

We got together
We cooked, we cleaned, we lived on a farm
Life was a dream
Life was fine, life was great
Me and bees, we stayed up late
And all my bees, they left one day, they said you should come
But I had to stay, had to stay
And they said that’s okay

You stay here, I’ll go get help
Why should it matter, to anyone else
One time through, I’ve lost myself
Feeling worse, then I’ve ever felt

And I’m not sure how long I’ll be
It’s one big world, it’s one small me
I'm finding help could take hours, days, or weeks,
so I’ll have to stop and rest my feet

And I’m not sure how long I’ll be
It’s one big world, it’s one small me
I'm finding help could take hours, days, or weeks,
so I’ll have to stop and rest my feet
It’s one big world, it’s one small me x 4

    General CommentI love this song, it was the first one I ever heard by TH. Uh, I'm not sure if I got the 'don't pick up a bomb' line right, that's what it sounded like to me when I cranked it up. . . I'll ask them to make sure.
