Small and heavy, fits right in your arms
Louder than the best of alarms
A new you to be proud of
Well I don’t suppose you’ve noticed but I do believe in love and

Where we go, we grow
Rain or shine or wind and snow
Everything’s a game until it’s gone
As twisted as we are we carry on

Now that we’re old enough to make a difference
Let us do everything we can
We’ll build a dream of stone and steel
We’ll make it all by hand

Draw up the blueprints for heaven
For who says we can’t have it now?
And may all my friends forget my sins once I am in the ground


Oh how ever so perfectly crooked we are
Singing our songs, chasing our tails
No matter how foolish our stories become
We’ll plant our seeds in the teeth of a gale
And they’ll do just fine
