EYE OF A NEEDLE

I’ve been trying to drive my car
Through the eye of a needle
Through the eye of a needle
I’ve been trying to drive my car
Through the eye of a needle
Through the eye of a needle to no avail
Maybe if you drive it a little bit faster?
Maybe if you throw out all of your passengers? And have a go again
I’ve been trying to drive my car
Through the eye of a needle
Through the eye of a needle to no avail

Love, loosen my grip
Slap me on the lip ‘til my jaw unlocks
Wash away the sand from beneath my socks and topple me

I’ve been trying to park this barge
On the tip of my finger
On the tip of my finger—it’s difficult
I’ve been trying to park this barge
On the tip of my finger
But now it’s breaking into splinters before my eyes
I think you might be heading for disaster
Drifting toward the kingdom of the wrong master
Better turn back now
I think it might still be ok
Turn back now
I just can’t see it any other way
Turn back now
All these treasures I’ve been storing up
I just can’t give ‘em up, give ‘em up, give ‘em up, I give up

Love, loosen my grip
Slap me on the lip ‘til my jaw unlocks
Wash away the sand from beneath my socks and topple me
Love, shoot down my nest
Teach me not to rest in worldly treasure
Expose my cushion for a cloud of feathers—it’s nothingness
Love, tear down my wall
Shatter mirror ball, of my forged future
Come and rearrange all of the furniture inside my house
To your liking
And make yourself home
