A friend of mine woke me up to tell me about his dream
All the lights in the world went black
He felt like a tiger in a burning tree
It was like he was late for something
That he did not wanna see
His life looks better on paper
He lives like a tiger in a burning tree

Blow out the candles and make a wish

A woman from the city in the South
She lost her cow when the bottom fell out
She sold her life to the deep blue sea
She left a message for the world to see
She knows better what it's like to be
A tiger in a burning tree

Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Blow out the candles and look away

I was a child that painted my toys angel blue and devil red
I broke him into pieces, set them on fire
Swept him under my bed
I never learned how to play nice with all the other kids
I never learned how to draw inside the lines and probably never will

Close your eyes and take a big deep breath
Imagine a world so much better than this
Now close your eyes and jump to a place you attain to be
And you can tell me what it feels like
To be a tiger in a burning tree
