A friend of mine woke me up
To tell me about his dream
All the lights in the world went black
He felt like a tiger in a burning tree
It was like he was late for something
That he did not want to see
His life looks better on paper
He lived like a tiger in a burning tree
Blow out the candles and make a wish

I heard about a woman from a city in the south
She lost her god when the bottom fell out
She sold her life to the deep blue sea
She left a message for the world to see
She knows now what it's like to be
A tiger in a burning tree
Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Blow out the candles and make a wish

When I was a child I painted my toys
Angel blue and devil red
I broke them into pieces
Set them on fire and shoved them under my bed
I never learned how to play nice with all the other kids
I never learned how to try for a better life
And probably never will

Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Imagine a world so much better than this
Now close your eyes and jump to a place
You were meant to be
And you can tell me what it feels like
To be a tiger in a burning tree
