  • if you want beautiful, pitiful,
    have me in a picture
    and if you want make me dance,
    throw me round spin upon your
    finger

    blind labors the blind and i am
    unwilling to uncover my eyes

    and if you want take your time rifle
    through, find a very nice one
    if there's a crease in my face over
    time, there's plenty more where
    that came from

    words, frozen, will thaw when i am
    wasted, i am better shut up
    and a frame is quite confining,
    hang me up...hang me up

    i'm in the photograph

    when i'm alone and the world is a
    fist, i am weightless
    a universe, gravitate, orchestrate,
    i am fearless
    and spin, the sky surrounding free
    from all the picture perfect
    and spin the sky surrounding,
    larger than life, meanwhile
