Andrew Bird — Masterfade lyrics

Well you sure didn't look like you were having any fun / with that heavy-metal gaze they'll have to measure in tons / and when you look up at the sky / all you see are zeros / all you see are zeros and ones / you took my hand and lead me down to watch a kewpie doll parade / we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade / it's not that I just didn't care I must admit I was afraid / and I'm awfully glad my finger's resting gently on the masterfade / the masterfade / I coulda played along / the masterfade / I coulda played Mah Jongg / but it just takes too long / and I just can't remember / which way the east wind blows does it matter? / If we're all matter/ what's it matter does it matter / if we're all matter when we're done? / when the sky is full of zeros and ones / I saw you standing all alone in the electrostatic rain / I thought at last I'd found a situation you can't explain / with gps you know it's all just a matter of degrees / your happiness won't find you underneath that canopy of trees / if the green grass is 6 the soybeans are 7 / the junebugs are 8 the weeds and thistles are 11 / and if the 1s just hold thier place the 0s a smiley face / when they come floating down from the heavens / you took my hand and lead me down to watch a papillon parade / we let the kittens lick our hair and drank our chalky lemonade / you squeezed my hand and told me softly that I shouldn't be afraid / 'cause all the while your finger's resting gently on the masterfade / the masterfade / I coulda played along / the masterfade / I coulda played Mah Jongg / but it just takes too long / and who the hell can remember / which way the east wind blows / when your lying on the ground / staring up at an inverted compass / I mean Christ who Knows?
