My Life As a Pez

Originally performed by Dave Abrahams

(Abrahams) © 1992

When you fill my heart, don’t forget the string that you use to open the wretched thing
When you tilt my neck back
Don’t you even try
To look inside my head and see the sky there
There’s room enough for the two of us
Choose me from among a thousand equal faces
Tender pride and purchase swell
But your pride mis-happened and misplaced on plastic
Wasted on an empty shell
When you break my neck
Don’t you even try
To look inside my head and see the sky there
There’s room enough for the two of us
In the morning when you rise
I look smaller
Light creeps through me where I lay
Forgive me I can’t help it now, I’ve been shrinking
Wither any love away
And if I should break don’t cry, sweet candy
Love me till I melt away
And if I should break don’t save my candy
Love me till I melt away
