about

Dedicated to Wan Yan A Gu Da and Pink Pineapple

lyrics

I WISH I WAS A SAILOR
ON A SILKEN YELLOW BALLOON
I WOULD SAIL ALL THE OCEANS
AND HAIL OVER THE MOON

I WISH I WAS A MACHINIST
WITH BRIGHT METAL SHINING
MY SPARKS WOULD SING AS LOUD AS DAY
BEFORE MY NIGHT OF DYING

I WISH I WAS A PHILANTHROPIST
COVERED IN JEWELS AND GOLD
I WOULD FINANCE EVERY LAST WAR ON MAN
ALL UNTIL MY AGE WAS OLD

INSTEAD I AM A FAILURE
STARING STRAIGHT INTO THE SUN
WITH RUINED LEGS AND BROKEN BACK
I SCREAM UNTIL EACH DAY IS DONE
