Lyric

High above the drizzle rain in my godish seat
I can see the trees and trains; I can count these plastic sheep
A matchbox clockwork toy town, full of crime and hate
And life and love and birth and death and saturated fate
And if you want to see me take out your giant pin, you can burst this bubble and watch me tumble in.
Flying over your house is the plane that I am in; you can use your x-ray eyes to look inside this metal skin.
And if you want to see me take out your magic pin, you can burst this bubble and watch me tumble in.
If I am falling will you break that fall, how can you ever catch me when you are so very small?
Flying over your house there’s a needle pointing up at me
It tells me my status, lofty weighty dignity
I left you something in a cupboard underneath the stairs
Inside my jacket pocket is a photograph of the one who laughs
And if you want to see me take out your giant pin, you can burst this bubble and watch me tumble in.
If I am falling will you break that fall, how can you ever catch me when you are so very small?
Flying over your house is the plane that I am in; you can use your x-ray eyes to look inside this metal skin.
