  • My heart is on my sleeve my head is in the sand
    I said how did we end up here? you said happenstance
    But i didn't understand so i made other plans
    I ran to the ocean washed the blood off of my hands
    I washed away my tears washed away ten years
    Washed away the empty space in-between my ears
    And you said all that i mean is that you and me
    Didn't meet because of fate but rather probability
    And you said the truth's like corn and lies are like weeds
    You said the schroedinger equation collapsed perfectly
    And i said mercy me be patient please
    'cause i don't know a goddam thing about the birds and the bees
    I just know what i'm like and i'm like what i see
    Even though it's hard to see because you just blinded me
    And if there's one thing i learned in chemistry
    It's that the gain of electrons is reduction, obviously
    But you can't see electrons without machines
    And you can't tell from my inflection if i'm being mean
    And i don't know if i can take you seriously
    Sometimes elections depend on the absentees

    And my family and my friends
    And all the little kids that love me make me strong
    And no matter how this ends
    I know i'll never ever ever be alone

    Some day i'll be an old lady
    With a big dress and an apron
    A babushka and bare feet
    I'll be out in my garden
    On my hands and knees
    And i'll be singing a song
    That is really sad and sweet

    Mommy and daddy your baby is grown
    And the smell of the cold, wet dirt reminds me home
