Down across the mirror
You flap, out folds your tongue
And slick and flick, you tuck your stick
Inside your shoe and run

I close my eyes to see the moon
And pitch stones at the sun
Dragging clouds across the stars
Cause I’m the only one

Choke my throat, plug my ears
Make me deaf and dumb
Snag the light from every sky
Cause I’m the only one
