Watching you sleep in the blue light
From the clock radio by the bed
Rattle of wires in the cortex
Got my own radio speaking in tongues
I will make you peanut butter toast
I will make you eggs and orange juice
I will dress well in my finest shirt
I will dress finely for your birthday

You sleep so quietly
Outside it's your birthday
You sleep so quietly

The hole in the wall where the pickles struck
The hole in the wall where the pickles struck
Glints like the edge of a cool bayonet
The hands on the clock stand in freeze frame
Spin like a stop motion carousel
I will make you peanut butter toast
I will make you eggs and orange juice
I will dress well in my finest shirt
I will dress finely for your birthday

You sleep so quietly
Outside it's your birthday
You sleep so quietly
