CAPRICORN on mercury
Lyrics - about a flea
the sun wakes him gently
strokes his lids
"wake up boo" kicks him friendly
outside giggling kids
he lies spread-eagled
ready to go
but the news make him stumble
through the day
moving slow

still in this constricting
daily grind
with all these conflicting
ideas on his mind
these eyes shine like diamonds
could melt the ice
and just for the moment
he feels safe from the outside
until she denies

it's just me in this world
a little flea crushed by impressions flooding in
me in this world
each day newborn in a place I can't live in

dizzy, I'm scared
busy in catching this place
I used to call my home
