lyrics

Is it any wonder why
The kite I fly is black and white
Take me on a bon voyage
A patch upon my really good eye

I’m fightin’ through this mean green sea
Of thick seaweed and shark
Searching for a treasure
In mysterious, fathomous dark

They say now, "the world is round"
But I fell off the edge
I’m hoping to awaken from a dream
Where I fell off the bed
Oh my head, oh my…

The compass in my better hand
Misunderstands wrong from right
Tied behind my back
Is why I always lose a left handed fight

They say now, "the world is round"
But I fell off the edge
I’m hoping to awaken from a dream
Where I fell off the bed
Oh my head, oh my…

My eyes a piece
My souls got teeth
They tumble out my mouth in dreams

My eyes a piece
My souls got teeth
They tumble out my mouth

They say now, "the world is round"
But I fell off the edge
I’m hoping to awaken from a dream
Where I fell off the bed
Oh my head, oh my…
