"Light Bulb" as written by and Curtis Kirkwood....
Running all around
Looking at the things
That I seem to see
That are filling me with wonder
And the other day
When you were just a flower
And there was a snowstorm
Right inside the bedroom
I became a bee
You became a scarecrow
And we had some trouble
'Cause we took a light bulb
Tried to turn it on
To eliminate the clouds
But it took the darkness
And it made it double

I looked up in the sun
'Cause I thought I saw a light there
Up in the air
I know it was a rose
Still it was a nightmare
Up in the air

Platinum rings
Spinning in search
Shadows on a sandpaper wall
In a duststorm
And I got a mothball
Hanging from a candlewick
And a pair of capsize
And I got a nightstick
Everywhere I look
I think I see a shadow
Everywhere I step
Is looking like dumb luck
If I had a wish
I'd wish I was a caveman
So I could fly like a goldfish in quicksand

I looked up in the sun
'Cause I thought I saw a light there
Up in the air
I know it was a rose
Still it was a nightmare
Up in the air

Little black tinman
A fist full of powder
Melting like a sugartree
Standing in a rainstorm
If I had a lie
I'd give it wings
And if I had a wish
I'd wish for everything

I looked up in the sun
'Cause I thought I saw a light there
Up in the air
I know it was a rose
Still it was a nightmare
Up in the air

    General CommentThis is slightly wrong. (at least for the album version)

    verse 1 line 5 day should be night
    verse 1 line 14 clouds should be problem

    verse 2 line 1 rings should be leaves
    verse 2 line 7 capsize should be cat's eyes
    verse 2 line 15 so should be then

    and the chorus is repeated at the end

    General Commentthanks a ton. i originally jotted it down from my shoddy recording of one of his shows, so it was probably a mix of both my ineptitude and alternate lyrics.
