Give me a leaf in a condiment jar
Fill it with well water
My feet and my head, tucked in and wet
Beneath a plate of shale bone
I liked it and I’d do it again
To be a turtle and a mayonnaise-magnet
The world is quick and I’m a coward, boy
So I’ll see you in the morning

Give me a corner of the third drawer down
Or hang me up from the mantle
There’s not a foot in this place, but I’ve got plenty of space
Somewhere there’s another
I liked it and I’d do it again
To be a sock and made of polyester
But nothing’s easier than wearing me out
So I’ll see you in the morning

Give me a plot and I’ll tell you a story
About the trials of birds and beavers
The hammock swings, I count my rings and my roots
In your backyard
I liked it and I’d do it again
To be a tree and a canine kickstand
Everyone’s a user and I can’t say “no”
So I’ll see you in the morning

    Song FactA fun note by the band about this song:

    Written in Northampton, MA as the result of a lyrical brainstorming exercise, before the band had formed. In the end, Dave and Auyon convinced Don that being in a band would be pretty fun, and Don convinced Dave and Auyon that he was pretty weird.
