about

(A Story of Post-Apocalyptic Joy)

lyrics

Into the garbage you have seen the feathers of a dove
The weatherman keeps telling you there's trouble up above
Crumpled magazines in frustration have been tossed
Well let me prop your chin up chum believe me all's not lost
We'll squeeze the juiciest plum
We'll breathe, at least breathe in some
And if the world should turn to black
We'll just turn and double back
And if the world should turn to glass
We won't even leave a smudge
Sometimes the world seems extra fat and bursting at the seams
Sometimes when you're about to sleep you swear your pillow screams
Your fingers look dishonest, especially the thumb
Well, I've got two good hands here, sir. And I can lend you one.
We'll squeeze the juiciest plum
We'll breathe, at least breathe in some
And if the world should turn to black
We'll just turn and double back
And if the world should turn to grey
At least it's not so black we'll say
Tunnels inside tunnels keep the light from seeping in
You may need to touch someone even with creepy skin
Oh, Hi! Just wipe your feet outside and please come right on in
My story will not bore you, sir. Oh, where do I begin?
We'll squeeze the juiciest plum
We'll breathe, at least breathe in some
And if the world should turn to dust
We'll let it blow right over us
And if the world should turn to fog
With outstretched arms we'll walk on
