lyrics

dear mr, highway patrol, i've got it under control
and i'd like to make it to boston tonight if i can,
i could have easily taken the wrong exit and ran
and avoided spilling my guts and my cool in the snow

i am and have always been a flailing kite,
but weighted with a muscle of stubborn stoicity
i had to prove i was a strong girl, but my body still hurt

if i were an elephant, i'd lift my wise ancient head
i'd never forgive you and i'd never forget what you said:
"what are they doing up there?"
why should i care?
they're not saints.

"did you put fish into the magistrate's soup?" they inquired.
i said, "my golly, i hope not."
lately, it seems the only movement around me are those of the roots
tying me down to the spot.
my arms are blistering from holding all this excess weight,
i can't even soak in rays from the sun.
blue veins make such a pretty sense when nothing does:
atoms swarming, collapsing as one.

my dear, you know you've got some sun
and your summer-bruised eyes look tired.
you're far too green to be blue.
one day you'll learn that your bloody teeth won't do you favors,
you're the only one strong enough to carry you.
