Some folks see the world as a stone
Your heart is the big box of paints
Your heart is the big box of paints
As they huddled there, in petaled prayer
Awaken you dreamers
Balloons and streamers
Please let some out
But don't let the loveless ones sell you
Some folks pull this life like a weight
Your heart is the big box of paints
Your heart is the big box of paints
Awaken you dreamers
Parrots and lemurs
Please let some out
Don't let the loveless ones sell you
And in the very least you can
