Forcin' my way out of sleep
I inhale the smell of spring and greens
And bucketloads of bees

The migraine's been all over me
The softest meadow would've cracked my head
I'm easily mislead

And you're standin' in my way
So give yourself a pair of hands today
My words to you are fake
Now you are my mistake
And I am yours

Don't be shallow
Don't be cheap
She prays for you to grow up
Patiently

Don't be selfish
Nor unmanaged
You're all I want and nothing more
But that's not good enough
No, no that's not good enough

Trouble at the hardware store
A funky foreign bodies interfere
We like you don't come near

But all that seems a waste of time
When you are sent to take the final test
In the solemn quest

She'll tell you to stand and watch
The violent fields that pray so much
Their ears are falling from the sky
Well most of them now hide and
I am yours

Don't be shallow
Don't be cheap
She prays for you to grow up patiently

Don't be selfish
Nor unmanaged
You're all I want and nothing more
But that's not good enough
No, no that's not good enough

She'll tell you to stand and watch
The violent fields that pray so much
Their ears are falling from the sky
Well most of them now hide and
I am yours

Don't be shallow
Don't be cheap
She prays for you to grow up patiently

Don't be selfish
Nor unmanaged
You're all I want and nothing more
But that's not good enough
No, no that's not good enough
Oh, no that's not good enough
