Let's forget the big cold buttons
And see if we can track through with warm boots
With shock ivory helmet eyes
We'll watch storming through keyholes in your living room
And there we'll listen to the chatter of our inner architecture
Now

You swear that photosynthesis
Was never an intention of the selfish sun
But all the months that start with "J"
Should be replaced with under-represented ones
That's when you enlist the animals to join your cause
And to begin a hunger strike

For all the crops to scream "eclipse"
And hide until the management
Does what they like

That's when you'll take on the foreman role
And take the matter into your own hands
Since you always cursed the sun as selfish
Won't you let me be your potted plant
Since you always cursed the sun

Let's forget the big cold buttons
And see if we can go now with our new shoes
With shock ivory helmet eyes
We'll move past the keyholes in your living room
But since you endorse the spectacle
There's not much left for me to say to you
Until recently, it seemed that all the wrong things had eluded you

That was until you wanted me to
Topple all the fences in your neighbor's yard
