lyrics

If you would just keep your head up
You’d look like my outline playing dressup
With a flash in a pan
And a stolen glance
You’re sweeter than a candy wrapper &
Even simple pleasures can hold fancy equations &
Come to fruition you know

You may be a god-sent / Or an atheist
There’s a war on our borders / Either way you look
Either way you look
(Tip toe across a tight-rope stage)
Hurry up there’s mountains to belay
Chip chop, light is limited
Smile for the Camera

You’re looking sharp like an arrow
But you’re cold as the pharaoh
Was before – a born again baby beluga
Got in his head changed his outlook
From the pick of the land to the grand opening

With a pinch of wine / And a putti on a pedestal
Secure and fastened for daisy buchanan
Just a jumpin jack with baggage to claim to / To carry over…

I just can’t wait – plain and simple
To dance with you – to shake the darkness
I just can’t wait…until it’s bright and early
Here my hands have been out &
Your best foot seems a bit forward oh ya
A meeting where the middle happens
Smile, for the camera / I’ll hike to novoskotia
For all my little people out there
Post marking on a landfill / hell yeah

You may be a god-sent / Or an atheist
There’s a war on our borders / Either way you look
Either way you look
(Tip toe towards the hopscotch coast
Around the squares in the box ball tournament
Out from the fort of pillow cases)
Smile for the Camera
