you're a little blue ghost in a pink haunted house
working in retail to pay off your car
your mom says you're funny
your mom says you've got a good heart

but then you freaked them all out and didn't stop to explain
this is not how it looks
this is not what i mean to say here
and as you head for the door all your friends holler, 'stop!'
they grab your arms and say, "hey where do you get off?"
and you say, "anywhere but here."

so you float your way home and you lock yourself in
and bury your head in a fresh flower bed
with a watering can full of gin

but you can't make a meal out of communion wafers
or write your life story on cigarette papers
you can't make love in the feotal position
yeah the mission has failed or did you just fail the mission?
i just failed the mission.

Very nice, and nice use of the glock.

Hey man, at the risk of sounding sissy, I have to say that this song really moved me. Everything you're doing here just sounds right on. The dark edge, the subtle and not so subtle, just really beautifully done.

Now I want a glockenspiel.

This is really good and may convince me to like all this modern hipster story telling folk music yet! ;)
