I walked alone amongst the people staring off into the sea
I watched the children blowing bubbles
(soapy water that's compressing and then expanding)
and pretty soon I have somehow forgotten all of my worries

...and then you come and hit me in the kneecaps with a bat

I've slept among the knotted pines
on mountains high between the clouds
I've sat and watched the sleeping animals breathing
(their hides compressing and expanding)
and pretty soon I have somehow forgotten all of my worries

...and then you come and hit me in the kneecaps with a bat

I've swam in oceans with the bluest tempered waters ever seen
the plankton making bioluminescent waves
(which were compressing and then expanding)
and pretty soon I have somehow forgotten all of my worries

...and then you come and hit me in the kneecaps with a bat
