[Verse]
Now it’s day I’ve been trying
To get that taste off my tongue
I was dreaming of just you
Now our cereal, it is warm


Attractive day in the rubble
Of the night from before

Now I can’t walk in a vacuum
I feel ugly, i feel my pores

It's the trees of this day
That i do battle with for the light

Then I start to feel tragic
People greet me i’m polite:

[Chorus]
What’s the day? What are you doing?
How’s your mood? How's that song?
Man it passes right by me
It’s behind me, now it’s gone


And I can’t lift you up, my mind is tired
It's family beaches that I desire
A sacred night, where we’ll watch the fireworks
The frightened babies poo
They've got two...Flashing eyes and they’re colored why
They make me feel

That i’m only all I see sometimes

[Bridge]
I've been eating with a good friend
Who said ‘A genie made me out of the earth’s skin'
In spite of her she’s my birth kin
She’s spits me out in her surly blood rivers

All the people out lurking
In dominions of a hot Turkish
If elephants are reaching for our purses
Then meet me after the world with the shivers
(x3)

[Chorus]
What’s the day? What you doing?
How's your food? How's that song?
Man it passes right by me
It's behind me, now its gone

And I can’t lift you up, my mind is tired
It's family beaches that I desire
Sacred nights where we watch the fireworks
They frighten the babies and you know
They've got two!
Flashing eyes and their colored why
They make me feel
That I'm only all i see sometimes
