“ACTUAL SIZE”
it’s got a big red face that comes up clear
a two-tone ride that runs on fear
a bolt-on shimmy that hums in space
and a brand new suit that’s going to waste
a brand new suit that’s going to waste
it’s got throw-back padding that’s stapled down
a pinched-up liner that’s wrapped for sound
a cold blank stare whenever i talk
and thirteen names for the way i walk
thirteen names for the way i walk
and i want you to sew it shut
before it wakes me up
you won’t recognize
the fifteen seconds i close my eyes
and i’m drunk now that you won’t be actual size
it comes when everyone goes to sleep
the little red monster you let me keep
it starts real small, unfolds its legs
then i feel heat on the back of my head
feel heat on the back of my head
i want you right here
when it burns up the atmosphere
wrap me steeling tight
unhook your jaws and cover my eyes
and i’m drunk now that you won’t be actual size
now that you won’t be
now that you won’t be
now that you won’t be
so surprised
