paper will blunt a knife

from by Sea Glass



i told the publisher the story of my life
but they just said the story was uninteresting and shite
i had a dream that the floor was gone
and i fell down into a never ending basement

planet earth, you're rich in what i need
but i just cant candle the way it comes to me
i'm making increasingly ornate paper planes
and dropping them out of the window of a moving train

i really like the way you're dressed
you seem happy now but you always seems sad on the internet
i guess it must be hard
not being happy with the person that you are

planet earth you will scare me to death
i see your birds but i am nothing like them
don't take a pebble from this beach
they are 1,000,000 years old and £100 each
