Hypnotized

Ani DiFranco


(tx matt!)

So that's how you found me
Rain fallin around me
Around lookin down at a worm
With a long way to go
And the traffic was hissing by
And i was homesick and i was high
And i was surrounded by a language
In which i could say only hello
And thank you very much
And you spoke so i could understand
And i drew a treasure map on your hand
And you were no picnic
And you were no prize
But you had just enough pathos
To keep me hypnotized
And the map led to an island
in a sea of store-bought dreams
where soulless singers sang
Over beats built by machines
And lovely girls were hovering
Above my head like gulls
With their long slender necks
And their delicate skulls
And i was no picnic
No, i was no prize
But i had just enough sweetness
To keep you hypnotized
So that's how you found me
Rain fallin' around me
Lookin' down at a worm

With a long way to go
