Almost a Normal Song

i thought i’d write a normal song 
about normal things, with normal chords 

it’s hard being normal 
but you’ve probably got a body or something 
and that helps 
yeah, that helps you fit in somewhere 

when you’re crying in a corner 
the disconnection is real 
remember this hymn 
your tears are the ocean 
the clouds 
and then the streams 

then there’s stuff like feelings 
and stuff like hurt 

we’ll evaporate lightly 
and rot with the shells 
in the commonest magic 
of our normalest worlds 

to a normal song 

it’s almost, 
almost, 
a normal song
