lyrics

The fox in the meadow said where did my head go I want to burn.
And the moth in the cockpit said I'm flying this fox, he's gonna burn.
So I packed up and left, said I'm heading out west, and then I woke up.
Try to tear out the staples, proceed to put back the maples and all the oaks up.

And I said okie dokie, I won't tell you I'm choking, that I'm withering slowly, and my heart feels like stone,
That these footsteps are holy, all these angels are smoking, only feeling so lonely because they're alone.
Singing Oh, Oh, Oh. Singing Oh. Oh. Oh.

Flick on your TV, so it ain't hard to be me, little cloud.
Gotta love broken lightbulbs, I don't got no disciples, because I'm too loud.
And when I'm sad at least, I can head home back east, and get rid of me.
Get rid of this person who is screaming and cursing get rid of me.

And I said okie dokie, I won't tell you I'm choking, that I'm withering slowly, and my heart feels like stone,
That these footsteps are holy, all these angels are smoking, only feeling so lonely because they're alone.
Singing Oh, Oh, Oh. Singing Oh. Oh. Oh.

And you're heading up north, and I'm all out of sorts,
And I'm heading down south, with a gun in my mouth,
And I'm heading back east, where I know at least,
I can dream of the west and death again.
And you're heading up north, and I'm all out of sorts,
And I'm heading down south, with a gun in my mouth,
And I'm heading back east, where I know at least,
I can dream of the west and death again.

And I said okie dokie, I won't tell you I'm choking, that I'm withering slowly, and my heart feels like stone,
That these footsteps are holy, all these angels are smoking, only feeling so lonely because they're alone.
Singing Oh, Oh, Oh. Singing Oh. Oh. Oh.
(And you're heading up north, and I'm all out of sorts,
And I'm heading down south, with a gun in my mouth,
And I'm heading back east, where I know at least,
I can dream of the west and death again)
