From the Valley

lyrics

Oh do I have a story for you
A little while back I met the girl from the valley
She could've told me mars
'Cause she was a kinda wacky
She wrote this story
'bout the end of the world
Where people turn into fish
She made a lot of paintings
Some 'bout swirls and frogs
But her true martian roots
Were revealed on a wall
A self portrait that was painted green
Geez you'd think she'd be a little more discreet

When all I've known is darkness
How do you raise the sun
When all I see is monochrome
How do colors burst from your bones

A little while back I met the girl from the valley
She could've told me mars
'Cause she was a kinda wacky
She wore space boots
She dubbed clogs
But I knew they were up to martian law
She told me that she sweats
A lot more than everyone
And really needs prescription strength antiperspirant
But I'd imagine that that human suit
Is quite an oven

When all I've known is darkness
How do you raise the sun
When all I see is monochrome
How do colors burst from your bones
When all I've known is darkness
How do you raise the sun
When all I see is monochrome
How do colors burst from your bones

The girl from the valley
Or so she says
How did she get that starlight
In her eyes
