lyrics

Statue

When you want attention, where do you go?
“Well sir why are you so small?”
I saw you write your name in ink on the wall
with a ballpoint pen.
Did your daddy understand your motives?
Did your daddy understand?
Saw you walking up the pool hill with your mom
With a suntan on your arms
Now you’re in the big pool with the big kids
But not it’s an adult swim
Did your mommy let you in with her?
Did your mommy let you in?
All my recreation, where has it gone?
When did I get so tall?
All of my possessions are over the wall
I’ll take them out and dust them off,
I’ll take them out and dust them,
I will take them out today and dust them off,
I will take them out today, one by one.
All my inspiration, where is it gone?
There really is nothing, at all.
Know there was a statue here someplace
Roaches of love at her base
She’s too tall and they’re too small
To ever glimpse the other’s face.
I would take her out today and dust her off
I would put her on display on my front lawn
I would take her out today and show her off.
All my inspiration, where are you gone? There really is nothing at all.
All my inspiration, where are you gone? There really is nothing at all.
All my inspiration, where are you gone? There really is nothing at all.
All my inspiration, where are you gone? I long to hear the voices of
the gods, the gods.
