"Pinky Toe" as written by and Aaron Thomas Gerber....
i get banged up a lot,
like a pinky toe
on coffee table legs, and
rocks buried in the snow
you should leave your jacket outside,
inside's too warm
it's just a thought;
you'll wear what you've always worn

i get banged up (oh)
i get banged up (oh)

i get banged up a lot,
like a pinky toe
on escalator steps and
welcome mats that say hello
splitting hairs with an axehead,
a chair, a plow
one hair yesterday is worth
two hairs now

when we die,
we'll be alone again
so i
want to get your everything

i move my fingers like a mouse,
to get the cat's eye
i tried to breathe
without my mouth,
and i almost died
something's wrong,
somethings worn-out,
used up, untied;
your loudest voice,
worn down
to the faintest sigh

i get banged up (oh)
i get banged up (oh)

when we die,
we'll be alone again
so i
want to get your everything
there's a moth
beating at the metal screen
there's your cloth
waiting to get its seam
by
the sewing machine

i get your brown tail,
i get your heartache;
i
get
banged up,
banged up,
bang bang bang
(bang bang bang, i get
banged up, bang bang bang)

no-one should be alone;
no-one should have space

no one should be alone,
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one

i get banged up a lot,
like a pinky toe
on jagged floorboards and all
your softest clothes
the ones you wore so much
your elbows
made elbow holes
and, leaning on
the ice, you can feel the cold

i get banged up (oh)
i get banged up (oh)

i wish i could be
like all the other toes,
the bigger ones that don't need
to watch where they go.
don't worry, dear,
we're on the inside,
the outside's so far
nothing bad
happens here in our little home

when we die,
our feet will disappear,
and our legs
will follow within a year
and turn clear

i get your brown tail,
i get your heartache;
i
get
banged up,
banged up,
bang bang bang
(bang bang bang, i get
banged up,
bang bang, bang bang bang)

no-one should be alone;
no-one should have space

no one should be alone,
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one
no one should be alone
no one, no one
