Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

Happy new year, baby
This one really flew
Another 365 excuses
Stretch out in front of you

What did god withhold from your brain
Or your hands or your legs or your spine
What did god in his infinite unfairness do
That you must eternally complain

Punish the world for dreams not attained
Punish the world, bury the key to your chains
Punish the world, remain a child, live in the past, be asleep
For you the world does not weep

Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh,
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh

There are birds which live off of others
Ah, but they can do nothing else
Now to see such a bird with fingers and a tongue
Makes one turn away
In my mind you’re happy
In my mind you’re free
But my mind is not the place where you live
The monstrous world’s where you must be
There’s enough time in a day for the earth to turn once
Enough time in a year to go round the sun
But for you and I to be friends again
No I don’t think there’s enough time for that

Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh,
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh
