about

You know how there's certain people, people that you come across, who always just make you feel off balance? And no matter how hard you try to hit the reset button the next time you see them, it's always the same; off kilter, bad, just wrong. If only you could get back to your people, or just be alone, get your bearings, and not feel like a jerk for awhile.

lyrics

I’m the jelly man
built you a house on the moon
switch switching around
everything I do

but your eyes still scare me
I miss the solid ground
and you still unveil me
as a half-wit clown

you got me falling in the hole
swimming like it’s slow motion
got me falling in the hole
running like there’s no tomorrow

someday the sun will return
perch on my shoulder and then
I’ll walk back into the light
I’ll be my own best friend again

no one will
no one will
no one will ever know
but I will

I’m a brand new man
bought me a house on the moon
swish swishing around
in my new spacesuit

but you still undress me
with your x-ray eyes
and you still impale me
on my own white lies

you got me falling in the hole
swimming like it's slow motion
got me falling in the hole
running like there’s no tomorrow

someday the sun will return
perch on my shoulder and then
I’ll walk back into the light
I’ll be my own best friend again

no one will
no one will
no one will ever know
but I will
