Take off all the marigolds
from the wreath I don't hang anymore
it feels like I am that elephant in the zoo

I read he'd sang like a lunatic
I read that he died of lonliness
I heard that they used to keep a man in there too
who wrote on the floor of his cage

I wish that there were unicorns and chemicals
that could help me forget I'm a miracle
I wish that there was a place where I could go
where I wouldn't feel like I'm an animal
to you and yours

The flowers removed were pressed and arranged
inside a book I never read by a fisherman
but I did see that show about those apes in the zoo

I watched as one hung herself from the box
I watched her throw her body against the walls
I heard that they used to keep a woman in there too
who wrote on the side of her leg

I wish that there were rainbows and sleeping pills
that could help me forget that I am not well
I wish that there was a place I could go
where I wouldn't feel like I'm an animal
to you and yours
