They've been circling
They've been circling
Since the day they were born
It's disturbing
How they're circling
Fifty feet from the pond
Pretty often
Pretty often
I don't want to be told

It's a problem
It's a problem
It's a problem I know
And I won't keep what
I can't catch
In my bare hands
Without a net
It's hard enough
To walk on grass
So conscious
Of the consequences

And they've been jerking
They've been jerking
In a pail by the dock
I know that oxygen might
Make them blossom and die
But I'm not going to talk
Feed them details
Feed them emails
They'll eventually grow

But it's not working
It's not working
Not as far as I know

And killing things
Is not so hard
It's hurting
That's the hardest part
And when the wizard
Gets to me
I'm asking for a smaller heart

And I got you
I thought that I caught you
Now I'll ruin it all
Feeling helpless
Acting selfish
Being human and all
And they're jumping
And they're jumping
But they'll never get out
Just keep touring
Just keep on ignoring
Be a good little trout

And the butcher stops and
Winds his watch
And lays their lives
Down on the block
He raises up his hatchet
And the big hand strikes
A compromise

WAIT we'll trade you
WAIT

Please just one more day
And then we'll go with no
Complaining
No complaining
No complaining
Stop
Come

And they're cutting
And they're cutting
And I think that I know
And they're gutting
And they're gutting
And I think that I know
And it's beating
Look it's beating
And I don't want to know
And it's beating
LOOK IT'S STILL BEATING
God I don't want to know

And killing things
Is not so hard
It's hurting
That's the hardest part
And when the wizard
Gets to me
I'm asking for a smaller heart
And if he tells me no
I'll hold my breath
Until I hit the floor
Eventually I know I'm doomed
To get what I am asking for

Now my heart
Is exactly the size
Of a six-sided die cut in half
Made of ruby red
Stained glass
Can I knock you unconscious
As long as I promise
I'll love you
And I'll make you laugh

Now my heart
Is exactly the size
Of a six-sided die cut in half
Made of ruby red
Stained glass
Can I knock you unconscious
As long as I promise
I'll love you
And I'll make you laugh?
