on Roadkill



I stand and watch the chairoplane
Spinning 'round and 'round
All the happy passengers
Fly high above the ground

How I'd love to take a ride
And I'm wishing for the worst:
That the chain might break
The seat might slide
And let me fall and burst

I stand and watch the aeroplanes
Rise high above the town
There's things to be explored out there
There's treasures to be found
But if I was to take plane
My greatest wish would be
To fly into a hurricane
And drown in the deepest sea

And when I go to sleep at night
I dream of forks and knives
And all the other pretty tools
To end a sappy life

Like bikes and trains and rubber bands
'Til one day I'll have found
The perfect little accident
To make me bite the ground
