don't be surprised if this blows my mind
all over the fuckin wall
when anybody sane with even half a brain
could have seen it coming
the sheet lightning cracks in the thunderstacks
building up a head
the early warning rain on the weathervane
spinning off the shed as he sang

they went picking through the rubble
wondering why they hadn't seen it before
boxing up yer shit
wondering what it was that they could have done
you let the angels and the devils
wrestle for it once you were done
let the neighbours and the papers
figure it out when it's done

was it the neighbours or the papers
that would talk about you once you were done?
did the neighbours and the papers
talk about it once it was done?
once you'd painted your masterpiece?

so don't be surprised if it blows my mind
mama don't you cry if it blows my mind
darling don't you cry if it blows my mind away
it's just dandelion seeds on a gentle breeze

the neighbours shook their heads
man, he was always the nicest guy
the papers wrote about him
he was always the nicest guy
