Turn on the light so it burns in the night
Turned down the flight
The world is uncertain
I'm sittin' by the curtains tonight

You will not know but grow
We will not dare
We're always smiling, care
And play with your hair

Got to reverse the pattern
What's the worst that could happen?
For the first time in my adulthood
The worse that could happen

Is utterly unthinkable
Sinking unsaid dread
Suddenly I'm worried about the bread
Under the bed

But then all sorts of awful shit seem plausible indoors
Proportions get warped into the worse and for certain
You're growing thumbs, I'm going numb
Tutting to your mum lips like it might be quite fun

A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be
A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be

Black and white blotches to watch and not get
And then flashes of scents along with your body and head
It is all as simple as you think when you are little
It is all as simple as me sinkin' a little drink

You're growing nails, mind is so nailed
I'm drinking your mother's wine for both of us today
You don't know choice, but you know my voice
You shoulda never have chosen me, I've love like a boy

The world's so dark sometimes
The noise of the cars
Building a world filled up
With toys and stars

A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be
A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be

You'll dance and every sound, footfall, every little move
Before you've realized that not every sound is music
My dad raised these thoughts, he paced these boards
I never knew, I just grew, that's all you can do

And then growing into an adult is just learning the language
Of explaining with words what you were as a baby
You'll leisurely learn how to lie and pretend
To service your love and rely on your friends

This could be fraught
But it's all I got taught
And I don't want to make up
As I go along with yours

A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be
A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be

A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be
A blip on a screen, you don't know me
I think about you and what you'll grow to be

I fix and I plan
But this is just mad
I love you
You're only a hundred pixels on a scan
