My friend has a little yellow jacket with patches on the arms
I once had a dream about her and me in a piano room in a bar
Today is so surreal, today is just a phase
You are a clock in a drawer with a lock and a quotable phrase

I've seen my shadow turn into a monster before but now it's coming after me
But I saw myself in the mirror, and I looked fine

My friend painted a pink elephant on a blank green wall
I wish it was real, I would feed it a meal, then I'd watch it's eyelids fall
I flew up in the sky higher than a bird
And nothing more existed but the music that I heard

And the monster broke the mirror when I thought I was okay
But I'm starting to get the feeling that I'm not

I asked, "Why are you so sad?"
You asked, "Why are you so lame? Do you think this is a game?"

My friend has a little yellow jacket with a big patch on the back
And she sewed it all up with no trouble or luck, but then she took a nap
I just lied to you because I don't know that for sure
But I could find out, there's no doubt about it, and I'd tell you word for word

And the fur retracted itself from my skin, I'm a human being again
But that's not to say that I didn't have my fun

So, why are you so mean to me when you claim to be my friend?
I don't know that I can believe you anymore
And if you throw that word at me one more time around
I think I'm gonna go insane again
