lyrics

And our bones will bake in the sun
and every cloud is perky and young
Tonight we'll spin cocoons
in the light of the moon
and then we'll pull our chains off and run...
And all the freaks will sneak out at night
And all our helium dreams will take flight
Just a pack of goons
On a rubber balloon
Oh, ain't this city such a pitiful sight

I remember I saw you
dreamy, whimsical, high
Sprawled out in the driveway
etchin' designs in the sky
What's keepin' us here?
Is it comfort or fear?
I can hear that open sky
callin' out your name....

And our bones will bake in the sun
and every cloud is perky and young
Tonight we'll spin cocoons
in the light of the moon
and then we'll pull our chains off and run...
And all the freaks will sneak out at night
And all our helium dreams will take flight
Just a pack of goons
On a rubber balloon
Oh, ain't this city such a pitiful sight

There you were
Starin' off into outer space
I asked you
If you wanna take a walk with me
You said, I ain't comin',
I ain't comin' down
I said, You ain't flyin', baby
You're literally on the ground
If you got nothin' left to lose
and I got nothin' left to do-do-do-do-do
Let's lift this zeppelin into the wind
and take it up to the moon

And our bones will bake in the sun
and every cloud is perky and young
Tonight we'll spin cocoons
in the light of the moon
and then we'll pull our chains off and run...

(INSTRUMENTAL)

But it's a real inconvenience time-wise
Because she's busy planning out her own demise
Here's to hoping there's a chance she can pencil me in
Between a bogus romance, and the bitter end...
Ominous and gritty,
Damn she looks pretty
Won't ya give me a try?
I can see those space monkeys
smokin' doobies in the black of her eyes

And our bones will bake in the sun
and every cloud is perky and young
Tonight we'll spin cocoons
in the light of the moon
and then we'll pull our chains off and run...
and the moon is smiling at me
and it's three in the afternoon

and I can't tell just what the hell is true
and the sun don't seem to bothered
as I gaze at her in the night
and I hope everything is going all right
all right
all right
