there are many things like a diamond ring that mean nothing to you at all i could buy you a boat you'd want it to sink in a moat laugh while the castle walls cave-in it's not the things you want it's the things you don't that's why i love you piles of dollar bills bunch of bottles of doctor pills a new car wrapped up in a bow a big house invokes a yawn break plates we can't eat on 40 of us could live there anyway it's not the things you want it's the things you don't that's why i love you

you saw this worm with legs inside your room it went to bed and then got up and flew out toward the moon it made a noise sounded like thunder through the wind disapeared when you tried to show it to your friend tell 'em all tell 'em all as he flew higher and hung out in the clouds the rain he made fell to the ground but did not make a sound through your window the ground turned into sand you tried to tell your sister but she screamed at you and ran now you tell 'em all tell 'em all tell 'em all you will notice as you get up in years it is easier to not believe and amplify your fears but don't listen even if it's me just stay true to what you do and all that you see tell 'em all tell 'em all

I'm as naked as a jaybird I'm as naked as can be I'm as naked as a jaybird runnin loose and wild and free I'm am going to build a nest in your hair I'm gonna build a nest there I'm gonna build a nest in your hair and then I'm gonna lay an egg there In a little while a little baby jaybird is gonna pop out right behind your ear he'll stretch open his beak and let out a peep You'll be sure to hear

folks act crazy and some are crazy all the time some can't help it they just talk in rhymes thoughts weigh heavy make you short of breath it was nerves but you understood the rest you don't need it you don't need it you knew that you knew that flashing lights and strip off everything it touches every human being they let every, everyone in you think it's over but it just begins you don't need it you don't need it you knew that you knew that all the questions came at you really fast back and forth would make you sing your last death will come and you won't turn your head it is peaceful your body turns to lead you don't need it you don't need it you knew that you knew that

Moments 03:01
Alone is better than telling kids they can stay scared in the bed Knocks come two by two faceless voices who bring the news that it is gone Pack it up in the sand and tell the garbage man to take it far away and fast Another cities’ view it won’t make you forget no matter how hard you try

there are things i've never told you haunted breaks and fractured shoulder i want the never-ending to just see it now if you got three i want them i don't care what you got in it it can make you see the dream that scared you last night your black eye your black eye your black eye ... nothing you can do it slowly covers your left eye and then it make you shudder soon your closest friends will not be able to tell who you are the funny thing is that it doesn't hurt that makes it worse even when it heals it will always leave a scar your black eye your black eye your black eye ... nothing you can do

I fooled you into thinking that i know more than i do you said it doesn't really matter beaten til your black and blue they didn't feed us much for dinner couldn't find you upstairs i search around for a towel stained the carpet under my chair the sun was up again for an hour you just slept on through\ i don't think why you don't think when i hope we never have to come here again

wake in the middle of the night takes your heart it takes eyes it takes a much stronger fight to fall asleep count from 1 to 10 remember your best friend do it all over again now it's working should i stay right here? i will did i heard a sound get up to fall back down i want my thouhgts back on the ground and own them sneak out when you're still asleep tip toed tigers do not scream the nest is bare the nest is clean forever should i stay right here? i will when do things change? at will

The worms that glow Turn snails into snow Their patterns show You're not close and have a long way to go And when they were trapped here For over a year It didn't take long the rain washed them on One touch and they're gone One inch will carry on Hiding back in the rock That the way they walk safe and sound but don't turn around totally unwound can't show your face in any town
