Where Do i Belong.jpg

wHERE dO i BELONG?
LIPS COLD LIPS
INSIDE WHERE ITS WARM
OUTSIDE IN HELL
WHERE THE BRACKEN SPILLS AND CHOPS
LIGHTNING DRAGONS OF GREEN
SMOL BOTTLE OF POP
GREEN FROG
AND A DISNEY BLACK AND WHITE

pOP! gOES THE WEASEL
sHAPES FLUTTER AWAY
LEAVING LINES OF GREY

YELLOW PAINT EVERYWHERE
THE EARTH NOW MATCHES THE SUN
AND I FEEL WARM INSIDE

bANG! GOES THE GUN
aND i AM LOST AGAIN
SCREAM GOES THE SHOUT
WHERE IS MY CLOUT
MY COURAGE MY ALL
LOST IN A BLAZING SUN

tHE DRUNKEN MOON WAXES IDLE
IN A CLOUD OF MONSOON RAIN
AND I WANDER THE FOREST
DRIPPING WITH ENUI
AND BAT DROPPINGS

a WRIGGLY WORM SAYS HELLO
FROM HIS LEAF TOP, TOP HAT
AND CANE WAISTCOAT IN THE RAIN

hELLO! mR wORM i SHOUT
hOW ARE wE tODAY? i ask
fINE fINE fINE SAYS HE
tHEN  a bIRD sWOOPS dOWN
aND tHERE iS nOTHING aGain bUT rAIN

i LOOK UP INTO THE YELLOW SUN
aND REALISE i NEED A GUN AGAIN
tO bLAST AWAY THE PAIN oN mY fACE
tO rEORDER THE UNIVERSE AGAIN
TO BURY MY PAIN

i AM THE wOOD. i AM THE FOREST
sOAKED IN YELLOW RAIN
DRIPPING ENUI TO THE GROUND
THEN i AM BACK AGAIN
AND THE WORLD IS GREEN
AND i AM PINK NOT WHITE
THEN THE WORLD TURNS YELLOW
AND i GROAN
AND THE WORDS COME OUT YELLOW
AND MY PAIN IS YELLOW
AND THERE IS A SONG ABOUT THIS YELLOW
BY COLDPLAY
wHERE IS MY GWYNETH?eVERYWHERE
iS sHE yELLOW TOO?

YES
wE ARE ALL YELLOW
