about

Straight from the witch’s brew
There’s colors just for you
But no one can see them, or touch them,
Or magic marker on their sleeves
Lemon, lover, give ‘em hell
Let grandma hear your rebel yell
I say pierce it, dye it, rip your jeans any which way
Little Green Knight mow the lawn
There’s always work to be done
Uh oh, but workin’ and working too hard
Will make you go pop

Doctor up that smile for me
And tell me it’s all right (Tell me it’s all right)
A little lie would help me sleep tonight
“The change will do you good,” they say
Yeah, well I felt fine before (I felt fine before)
So make believe
And lie to me once more

Mrs. Kellner make a toast
For you say you saw your father's ghost
They don't believe you
Forget them
'Cause I truly do
Swan he didn't want to wait
Took a bus across the continental United States
And saw Denver and Cleveland and Scranton
And tasted the wine
I hear it makes you go pop

Round and round we go
And not a day goes by
Without changing my mind
They say it's in my blood
To get like this
A fear I sometimes feel
So I breathe your woes
The world is flat
The world is round
It doesn't matter in this small town
Because no one leaves
And no one comes
This is all that it will ever be
And no one's gonna argue me now
I don't want to fight you in this made up land (Ad naeseum

Smile just a little more believably

Esmeralda take my hand
I'm going to Candyland
And you'll fit in much better
As a construction paper cut out
