Verse:There's a hole in the clouds
and the sun is looking down,
but what's that shiny thing moving around?
So what's that thing?
It has a pretty ring.
Will somebody please tell me why it's glittering?

Chorus
What's that glimmering now, that shiny thing?
It makes me want to break out in sing.
What's that glimmering now, that shiny thing?
It makes me want to do an insane thing.

Verse:There's a hole in my mind
About the size of a dime,
but still that shiny thing continues to shine.
Oh why oh why
is there no more shine?
Did all that shinyness fade over time?

Bridge:
It's shiny and pretty and hypnotic and worthy of praise..
if I can't have it
I'll do something quite insane.
