She's a jar
A sleepy kisser
My pop quiz kid
With a heavy lid
With feelings hid

She begs me not to miss her
She says forever
To light a fuse
We could use
A hand full of wheel
And a day off
And a bruised road
However you might feel

When I forget how to talk I sing
Tonight is real
Won't you please
Bring that flash to shine
And turn my eyes red
Unless they close
When you click
And my face gets sick
Stuck
Like a question unopposed

Just climb aboard
The tracks of a train's arm
In my fragile family tree
The people under me
And watch me floating inches above

Please beware the quiet front yard
Before there were water skies
I warned you
I warned you not to drive
Dry your eyes you poor devil

Are there really ones like these
The ones I dream
Float like leaves
I passed through before I knew you
I believe it's just because
And freeze to spread skeleton wings

Daddy's payday is not enough

Oh I believe it's all because
Daddy's payday is not enough
In my fragile family tree
Just climb aboard
The tracks of a train's arm
And watch me floating inches above

The people under me
My pop quiz kid
She's a jar
With a heavy lid
A sleepy kisser
A pretty war
My feelings hid
She begs me not to hit her
