I know what you're thinking
Or at least I think I do
What's on my mind isn't half of what on your's
And I turn, see you quaking
And I'm wrapped in your old man coat
Like a present or a broken-in leather shoe
And buried in that warmness I can't even remember my fears
Is it obvious to you yet that you hold me up?
Is it obvious to you yet that you keep me up?
Do you know, do you know that you hold me up?
And the planet is safe for now
And my planet is safe for now
Space invaders is getting closer
And my spaceship's not sure how to fight them
To fight them without you
To fight them, to fight them without you
Can't fight them without you, without you, without you
I'm sorry if it's scary for me to depend on you
I don't mean to be a burden at all
I decided in this silence that I can't do this alone
I need safety and hope that you're not pissed off
And I'm selfish and I know it
To ask this of you
At a time when your life's so upside down
Now at a time when your life's already mess up as it is
At a time when your life's so upside down
The planet is safe for now
Well, my planet is fine for now
Space invaders is getting closer and I'm really not sure how to fight them
To fight them without you
And they're coming so close now
And they're getting so close now
Invaders right on top of me and my spaceships don't know How to fight them, to fight them without you
I need you now, I need you now, I need you now
Don't leave me now, don't leave me now, don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Can't fight them, can't fight them, can't fight them
Won't fight them, can't fight them without you
And I guess you are like a clownfish in a sea of animals
Yeah, that's a sweeping metaphor
