We walked on stilts to the island.
The bees they swarmed, they invited us in.
Let them eat cake; throw away cans.
They asked, "Why are you saying us when we can't even see your friends"
I guess I shouldn't call them friends they're really just acquaintances,
I guess I really only see them when I get real desperate.
When I get really desperate.
Hello my dear where have you been.
Messages sent out but they all go unread.
When what I know is what I've read...
I searched for yellow without a hello, I slipped into the sewer system.
I brought me straight into the ocean I crashed into your boat again.
I said whatever, I wrote a letter, I set the post office on fire.
I set the post office on fire.
The telephone booth rang a cry.
It sang the disembodied voice of a good friend of mine.
He cleared his through and heaved a sigh.
He said, "Hey man... I know where you've been and I can surely sympathize.
But concerning your act of arson you should have rationalized."
I hung the phone up before he finished, I didn't want to realize
that I set my own best friend on fire.
I set my own best friend on fire.
She isn't real but she's one fire.
Track Name: The Expert
I told the stars where to shine,
but they seem so distant.
I told my friends to unwind,
but they'd say, "hey listen,
I think I know an astronomer
who can see the stars
and I think I know of a locksmith
who can mold a key to my heart
I think I know a teacher
who should have taught you from the start.
Do you think you have the time?"
Cause I don't trust many experts,
they make me feel like less of one.
I don't trust many experts.
I just trust one.
I had a gorgeous lovely friend
but she kept me guessing.
So we took out our hearts and
find they were still beating. She said
I know a cardiologist,
who could make these stop
and I think I know of a surgeon
who could give us broken hearts
I think I know of a therapist
who could work this out.
But do you think you have the time?
Cause I don't trust many experts, they make me feel like less of one.I don't trust many experts. I just trust one.
If I just trust one
Then I won't have to worry about being expert at something
cause I'm sure if I was expert at something I would
want to be expert
