Linoleum Lyrics
She keeps the world at bay
With walls built to stand come-what-may
And with that coldness on display
They held until today
She would hold her own
Running all alone
Ridding her road of every grain
To stay in control

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up and stored

She's won every war
And when she's out that door
She will push ahead of you
Frowning at the poor
She would move so fast not to end up last
Aiming for the finish line
To smile at those she'd passed

Suddenly she is down on all four
And the walls will support her no more
Cries her eyes out like never before
Onto this linoleum
The bottled up... and stored

And sometimes
Oh, just sometimes
That's really all it takes:
A hand on her shoulder, and then she breaks
(Yes then she breaks, she breaks...)

Sometimes that's really all it takes
A word of kindness and she breaks
And then the sum of damage done
Spills out on stale linoleum

Sometimes that's really all it takes
A gentle touch and then she breaks
To see the sum of damage done
Stain this linoleum

Sometimes that's really all it takes
A word or touch and then we break
And all this world's linoleum
Can't hold the sum of damage done

She's becoming her last casualty
If she breaks then at last she'll be free
But she keeps it together once more
To run another day and fight another war

Itsy bitsy spider climbed the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Now she stays on the ground
So she'll never fall
See, she would rather drown than lose control

She really would
