lyrics

Warm skin
Stretched as a canvas over her bones
Peppered
With freckles, and smooth as a stone

Painterly pleasantries
Are smalltalk accessories

Do not
Don't make me choose, I cannot
Between
Smalltalk, a rock, and hard spot

You'd say
Don't bite the hand that feeds you
Then I'd say
Don't shake the hand that greets you

Look. We are both humans here
And as such
We can get down to business without words
Big
Or small

Weather,
Bad jokes, and happenings overseas
Sometimes
I'd rather a crowbar blow to the knees

But you are
Worth talking to
Your jokes
Are funny and new

Painterly pleasantries
Are smalltalk accessories

Look. We are both humans here
And as such,
We can just hold each other without words
Big
Or small

Big
Or small.
