"Why is the world so creepy?" she asked
After a car full of haircuts drove past
A backseat full of 'the boys'

I told her that 'It isn't...
That... That it's exquisite
But like love, it has it's barbarous threats

Still in spite of the cads
And the stoop-shouldered teens
I know I'm losing you
I know what that means, yea

I told her that it isn't
That it's real exquisite
But like love, it can have it's
Stubbed-toe effects

And juts like after she heard
The word 'iridescent'
And everything was iridescent for awhile,
It wasn't long
Before she exhalted out of nowhere,
'Isn't this exquisite? '

Once you've said 'mmm' in unison
And 'oh' in double surprise
And shared relief with a mutual 'phew'
And a look in each others' eyes

I tell her that is isn't
Insisted that it isn't
Because like love
It has too-cunning effects
I told her that it isn't
That it's just exquisite
Because like love it has
It's barborous threats

'Why is the world so creepy? ' she asked
After a car full of haircuts drove past
A backseat full of the boys
Breaking glass
Throwing off glass.
