Minnesota Sunrise

lyrics

Did I lose a friend, or keep an enemy I’d made at arm’s length?
I trust my senses when my gut feeling is strong
That doesn’t mean I’m never wrong
You don’t lay out bear traps to catch a mouse
Or if you do, it’s overkill
And all the time you spend
Driving dearest friends to the nearest hospital

I stepped out wearing only what god gave me
In a Minnesota sunrise
I wondered if the place would want to hurt me
It was 260 Kelvin

You don’t have to close the doors
Pull the curtains, never love again
Train a girl to fuck up men
No more kissing frogs
But hey - guess what? Frogs are people too
In this metaphor
Frogs have feelings, some are brightly coloured, delicate
Some of them are poisonous
Some of them will sing for you
If you ask them
Make a soothing noise for us
