lyrics

I pop my mouthguard in
in anticipation of getting punched
but you never swing
a bee must save its sting

is there a clinical term
for a reflex where you always think you're wrong
this is hopscotch
this is song

and it goes...

every poet seems to try
to wrap his or her arms
around the world
but its secrets don't unfurl

here I am, here I'm pinned
you wrote these words, I followed suit
an ancient hymn
I'm going out on a limb

by saying...

I got kicked out of the greek chorus for sound smug I got kicked out of the greek chorus for sounding smug I got kicked out of the greek chorus for singing with a shrug I got kicked out of the greek chorus for sounding smug

one day I'll find you spirit
and I'll demand my tax
last night I stomped home in the snow
and didn't cover my tracks

kept cobwebs on the lampshades
and dust on the bathroom rug
if I die with my stinger unused
it's cause I found another drug
