Stars

She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she’s out back counting stars.
She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she’s out back counting stars.

She’s not at work, she’s not at school,
She’s not in bed, I think I finally broke her.
I bring her home everything I want, and nothing that she needs.

I thought she’d be there holding daisies, she always waits for me.
She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she’s out back counting stars.

I found her out back sitting naked looking up and looking dead.
A crumpled yellow piece of paper, with seven nines and tens.

I thought she’d be there holding daisies, she always waits for me.
She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she’s out back counting stars.

I thought you’d be there holding daisies, you always wait for me.
She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she’s out back counting stars.

I’d Like Your Hair Long

I’d like your hair long and laid on to the ground, you’d prefer an astronaut
someone to relate to and someone to command, and I will be a simple man.
I could hardly wait for my stars to fall in line and synchronize and shine.
A wasted string of years and a wasted string of lies, it’s still the same to me.

It’s a waste of a song.
It’s a waste of a song.
You’re a waste of my lungs.
It’s a waste of a song.

I’d like your face gone and in its place the sun, and I will be an astronaut
for I have come to surface to catch some light and feed, and I have everything I need.
And I could hardly wait for my stars to fall in line and synchronize and shine.
A wasted string of years and a wasted string of lies, you’re still the same to me.

You’re a waste of a song.
You’re a waste of my lungs.
It’s a waste of a song.

It’s a waste of a song.
You’re a waste of my lungs.
You’re a waste of a song

Little Dipper

If we both stand with absent eyes
And think about the oceans, watch ’em dry
We can see far to the other side
It’s you and I forever, we don’t have to hide

If we ignore the signals that mission control will send
It’s one big ship ride anyway, this hell will never end
We gaze out on what they left of the stars
All we see now we can take as ours

You two got just moments left to give
Come back now and we will let you live
Stay inside our blue protective eye
We won’t let them take you, we won’t let you die

My baby spins propellants, my systems set to blow
She’s at the milky way now, spelling into snow
And she’s constructed flashpoints to cover up the sun
I sleep under glass, I know that she will wake me when she’s done

You two got just moments left to give
Come back now and we will let you live
Stay inside our blue protective eye
We won’t let them take you, we won’t let you die
