  • Many years have passed but you're still charming
    Rose falling and exploding and you can't save the world on your own
    I guess
    Don't send me it
    You keep it
    You keep it

    You keep it

    Weak arms can't open the door, kung fu council
    It'll be okay, I just need to be weird and hide for a bit
    And eat an old sandwich from my bag

    I've come here to make a ceramic shoe
    And I've come to smash what you made
    I've come to learn how to mingle
    I've come to learn how to dance
    I've come to join your knitting circle
    I've come to hand weave my own bunk bed ladder in a few short sessions

    It's a Tokyo bouncy ball
    It's an Oslo bouncy ball
    It's a Rio de Janeiro bouncy ball
    Filter, I love these mighty oaks, don't you?
    Do everything and feel nothing
    Wristband, theme park, scratchcard, lanyard
    Do everything and feel nothing
    Do everything and feel nothing

    Pat Dad on the head
    Alright, you big loud mouth
    Thanks very much for the Twix
    I think of myself as a hardy banana with that waxy surface
    And small delicate flowers
    A woman in aviators firing a bazooka
    A woman in aviators firing a bazooka

    I've come here to make a ceramic shoe
    And I've come to smash what you made
    I've come to learn how to mingle
    I've come to learn how to dance
    I've come to join the knitting circle
    That's just child chat
    Why don't you want oven chips now?

    It's a Tokyo bouncy ball
    It's an Oslo bouncy ball
    It's a Rio de Janeiro bouncy ball
    Filter, I love these mighty oaks, don't you?
    Do everything and feel nothing
    Wristband, theme park, scratchcard, lanyard
    Do everything and feel nothing
    Do everything and feel nothing

    You seem really together, you've got a new coat, new hair
    Well, I'll tell you one thing, you've got it coming
    One day, you're gonna get it
    Ha
