Once

When I was little someone pointed out to me

Some constellations but the big dipper's all I could see

That brontasaurus must have stood a thousand miles high


That brontasaurus laying on it's side up in the sky

Bottoms up and this time

Won't you let me be?

Bottled up but this time

Won't you rescue me?

You should have been here last night and heard what the big dipper said to me

Jack thought it twice and thought that that that made it true


Some brains just work that way


That's what chemicals can do

He thought he'd have a beer

He thought he was alone

He thought an Albertson's stir fry dinner would make his apartment a home


Bottoms up and this time

Bottled up but this time

Won't you let me be?

Won't you rescue me?

You should have been here last night and heard what the big dipper said to me


I thought I bored me but I learned to think like you

Now nothing bores me that's that nothing is thought through

Bottled up but this time

Bottoms up and this time


Won't you rescue me?

Won't you let me be?

It's all I can see

Thought it out and this time

You should have been here last night and heard what the big dipper said to me
