i know i'm easy to love
but my time is so precious, dear
don't let your guard down
don't let me be your guardian
uh uh uh, uh oh...
i'll be breaking all those faithful crutches
'cause that's how you learn!
that's how we all learn

and in the time it takes the earth to make one revolution around the sun
well, i've already started one
and it's already a year old
oh honey, you're so late!
noh... but you're never TOO late...
i'll give fair warning now...
the light is bright outside the cave

in my bones.. in my marrow..
there is a thing that gives life..
oh, but in murderous men
oh oH! oH OH! i don't get why...they have the same kind

i want to save your soul!
no, not with prayer.... my scalpel.. my scalpel... my scalpel!!
but who's gonna save mine when i stop breathin?
oh, who has to agree i'm a good person?

i'm gonna go to med school
i'm gonna be a doctor
i'm gonna fit in all nice & proper
and i'll make money
and i'll be happy
all the time

i'm gonna be a poet
a servant of love & language
i'm gonna live forever inside these verses
and i'll have freedom
but i'll be lonesome
all the time
