lyrics

—————

There is a place I like to go
When all world is shutting down
It's a village on an island
A laid-back little town

Where your neighbors are the cutest
And your outfits are all great
Where a dog who has no hobbies
Helps you not forget the date

There's an owl who's scared of bugs
There is a sloth who buys your drugs
You say you'll only play a couple hours
Then it's 3am & you're still moving flowers

The sky is full of presents
And the earth is full of bones
Your human friends can visit
You can all stare your phones

A new species to discover
A new island to explore
Another house to fill with clutter
Another visit to the store

Shake the trees and break the rocks
Take out a loan &, buy some stalks
this getaway is longer than I planned it
but together our horizons have expanded

~~~

A stick, a stone, it’s a DIY shelf
It’s a thing in my house, and I made it myself

A flag, a tune in my own little town
All these creatures have names, I have written them down

Some of them like to talk, some are much more succinct
There’s a dodo or two, I thought they went extinct

All your neighbors are nice if you give them a chance
All the means are controlled by a raccoon in pants

It's the bugs on the trees, it's the seasons that pass
It's a promising splash— It's a bass, it's a bass

And the animals cross with your virtual doll
They are calling your name, stay inside, greet them all

A sink, a stove, it’s a full kitchen suite
Dirty dishes don't pile up if you never eat

An egg, a pearl, a petal, a shell
To the one they call Zipper, I will see you in hell

The swing of an axe and the arc of a net
Sell some bugs & some fruit to pay off your debt

Neighbors crowding the square, see them interact 
But when they exercise, why do I feel attacked?

And a dog plays guitar by himself the rain
Water landing ahead, that’s ok, it's a plane

And the animals cross at horizons anew
It is zeroes & ones, it’s your friends, it is you
