If I were you I'd build a time machine
So you can go and find out where I've been
I'm a sad giraffe but you never asked why
Even laughing gas makes me cry

Caterpillars, chatterboxes, costume parties
Paradoxes, lion tamers, railway stations
Hieroglyphics, constellations

Daffodils taught astronauts mathematics
Barnum & Bailey kept elephants in their attics
The least you could do is go and build a time machine
It's time you go and find out where I've been

Silver nitrate, x-ray glasses, tight-rope walkers
Tap-dance classes, vacuum cleaners, birthday presents
Geiger counters, phosphorescence

Infinity's pretty measley after all
Like a donkey doing cartwheels down the hall
So hand out straightjackets on sinking ships
Just quit calling me Miss Apocalypse

I never meant to steal that Ferris wheel
But you know flashing lights have a certain appeal
And people going nowhere as happy as they can be
Thought I'd take them home so they could live with me
