lyrics

Tic tac toe on my window pane,
There's a man in the garden with a voice like rain.
It's my birthday today and he's brought me a cake,
He said all my desires and fears are at stake.

Have you seen my dreams at all?
They're impossible and over ten feet tall.
I never thought of selling my soul
because it's too dirty to count at all.

Make a wish he said,
I wanna be unpopular, I wanna be strange.
Make a wish he said,
I wanna be a rockstar that people hate.
Blow out the candles and wish for the best,
It's who you know, who you fuck and the rest is luck.
Make a wish he said,
I wanna be invincible but I don't want to be like them.

Knock knock, BOOM, as he burst right in,
He didn't have a brain and his heart was tin.
But he shared all his tricks with me, how to succeed,
He said pucker your lips and ingest the speed.

Is he real, this man who offers me the hope of feeling tall?
Can I escape into his eyes where I rise above them all?
It's not as though the ones who made it were all sane in mind,
But I find with every break of my reality I'm so inclined to go by his sight.
