lyrics

we stay quiet as
we grip along the roofing
float around your TV set
holding our lungs down
as though breathing was some rusted
twelve-step program, vigilant
never touching

we're so lucky as
we paint our little houses
scratch-off victory
we're so happy
as we're looking through our microscopes
nothing we can't see
time, talk, and action

you keep waiting for the call
the change that you've been counting on
when it all starts feeling like your own
a picture-postcard on the wall
to show you what is beautiful
feels just like home

girls named after flowers should never be trusted
girls named after flowers should never be trusted

we're so pretty
as we reach the starry desert
two-thousand far headlights
never planting seeds
just laying flowers in the sand
a picture-perfect sight

girls named after flowers should never be trusted
girls named after flowers should never be trusted
