about

This song was written on a dare.

lyrics

There’s a lullaby I remember
That I credit with my proximity to song
There’s my momma’s voice in the embers
So safe, warm and strong
And for all the rightness in that nursery
It gets just one thing about hell wrong
I’m not religious, just suspicious
But even I’ve been playing dead all along

Let’s say there were bears
Over there, with the stare
Not like the nursery rhyme
Claws in the air
And while I’ve grown
Oh not enough to be left alone
So I’m scared

Let’s say there was fire
Burning higher, trees inspire
How it branches out
Walking the wire
And while I’ve cried
Oo my bones are running dry
I’m a liar

So coddle me
Close my ideals
Hold my frame to the floor
Send double agents
To reject my appeals
All eleven times of ‘For’
Second personhood nobody speaks of
Would could divide into more
Now alarm, way-o, way-o
Way-o, way-o-oh

There’s a bear
Over there, with the stare
Not like the nursery rhyme
Claws in the air
And while I’ve grown
Oh not enough to be left alone
So I’m scared

There’s a couch
Hear me out, hurting ouch
Red leather speaks
Volumes about
And while I’ve been lost
Oo just last week I almost forgot
I can’t get out

So indulge me
The princess to be
Put a tiny crown on my head
Make me king
Tell me songs are mine to sing
And then ask me to choose you instead
Significant changes seem so strange that
It must be a nightmare in bed
So awake, way-o, way-o
Way-o, way-o-oh

Lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu- by, by, by
Lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu- by, by, by
Lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu-lu- by, by, by
To all my bears, everywhere, good night
