lyrics

I had a dream I was a bicycle
You rode me everywhere
And we perplexed the passerby
Just open mouths and stares
But when you rang my bell
Applause would fill the air

If I were a ghost
I’d haunt you like a curse
Just to say I love you
In the fucked up sense that we deserve
But if I ever had the chance
You know I’d probably lose my nerve

Let go of my hand
I’ll sink until the end
Let go of my hand
Just let go...

And then there was a shark cage
But who would be a shark?
You’ve always been a biter
I thought that was a lark
And not about survival
I might have misjudged from the start

You’ll make a beautiful mermaid
A maiden fair
Whether sunning on the shelf
Or curled up in an octopus’ lair
Anywhere
These are just things I think about...
