I know, I know
How it goes
Dangerous shapes never know their place
In the world, make a home in a junk drawer
A dangerous space
For a tender place

Somebody better come
And turn these lights back on
And file the edges down so we don't cut our fingers off when
We try to touch each other in each other's sleep
Sleep safe
Dangerous shapes
Are always on the make

Until they find
A friendly face
To make them feel
Make them feel less dangerous

It's a lonely and a sad affair
That wonderful and rare
Are words that have become synonymous to you and me and
The time we spend together
Rubbing up against each other with our
Dangerous shapes
We're in a ragged state

So we'll stand perfectly still
Like chickens with our heads still on
But not for long
Cuz we can only do wrong
In the nighttime, broken glass rattles in the sack like
Dangerous shapes
We gotta watch our backs

Until we find
A friendly face
To make us feel
Make us feel less dangerous

Well look what we did!
A play-related injury
There's body parts for picking up and picking the ones to save
You're a train wreck
And I suspect
That things are dangerously close again to shaping up that way

Until we find
A friendly face
To make us feel
Make us fell less dangerous
