lyrics

You can't play connect the dots
Without any dots
But it's worse when there are too many dots
Conclusions get drawn and thoughts get thought

Alone with my treasures in my red string bunker
Thumbtacking torn-apart magazine covers
Newspaper clippings cutting room floors
I'm two steps ahead
Queen to H-4

But the tin of kipper snacks is way more than that
And the woman on TV must be sad
That she can't have any of my kipper snacks

But I look at the tin and it's empty again
And the woman on TV is chewing
I look at the woman she winks at me
Then a commercial for kipper snacks

The cover is lifted
Both keys are inserted
The button can't be unpushed
As flashbulbs explode
The ceiling opens up
And the balloons and confetti choke you

Everybody in the town knows something I don't
Everybody walks around with their eyes glued to me
All the animals in town smell something I can't
Birds and rattlesnakes surround me but they won't
Tell me anything

Everybody in the town knows something I don't
Everybody looks around at the clues I can't see
All the animals in town smell something I can't
Birds and rattlesnakes surround me but they won't
Tell me anything

(Only kinda people I know are perfect strangers
Everybody seems to know something that I don't
All the animals in town have started packing
Birds and rattlesnakes left town
They smell what I can't)

(Only kinda people I know are perfect strangers
Everybody seems to know something that I don't
All the animals in town have started packing
Birds and rattlesnakes left town
They smell what I can't)
