Andrew Bird Lyrics

8. Opposite Day



I got home this morning with the sun right in my eyes
there was no warning as it took me by surprise
hit me like an act of God causing my alarm
that I'd not become a cephalopod
I still had legs and arms
still had legs and arms

and today was s'posed to be the day
molecules decided to change their form
the laws of physics lose their sway
youthful indiscretion is
suddenly the norm with the good kids sprouting horns
and today was s'posed to be
not just another day
today was s'posed to be
opposite day

and those who can't quite function
in society at large
are gonna wake up on this morning
and find that they're in charge
while those the world's set up for
who are really doing quite well
gonna wake up in institutions
in prison or in hell

and today was s'posed to be
opposite day

...

but if you think there's something else
well you're right there is something else
but if you think I'm gonna tell you
think again why should I think of telling you
what there is
because silence is knowledge and knowledge is power
I'm under explicit orders to dare not speak its name
no I dare not speak its name
Listen! I just work here - no I dare not speak its name
