lyrics

a fear of heights, i might sprout wings -
hope these ropes and shoots really spring!

i have three feet, i can't pick two -
which ones wear my dancing shoes?

la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?
la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?

artificial flavours, i can't help but savour
the sugar so sweet and refined.
trees see all the colours in droplets of water,
i could too if i opened my eyes!
faster and faster, we tuned out the pastor,
carved names in the pews with our pens.

la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?
la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?

nothings gonna change it...
gonna change my world.
nothings gonna change it...
gonna change my world.

jackaroo david ain't gonna change my world.
nothings gonna change it...
gonna change my world

change my world, sugar!
change my world!

nothings gonna change it...
gonna change my world.
nothings gonna change it...
gonna change my world.

change it, all the fake shit,
all the habits that need breaking.
the ingredients are our making,
and i'm asking what they're made of.

it's this percent fructose,
and this percent aspirin,
and this percent sucrose,
and this percent plastic.
red dye number 5 certified by organic
government bodies, theres no need to panic.
it's all going fine, don't you further examine
why your body feels full, but your soul feels like a famine.
looking for a shortcut,
looking for a plan out,
looking for a hyperlink,
get me off this planet!
gravity limits me and i can't stand it!
make it all sweet, baby, make it all candy!
anything's mine if i only imagine -
a kid in a candy store that's diabetic.
it's all pretty great, but i make it sound tragic -
make it all sweet, baby, make it all candy!
make it all sweet, baby, make it all candy!
cuz we all know that life sucks without la-la-la-la

la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?
la-la-la-lollipop-rockets-bubble-gumdrops
candy crystallize, can it simplify?

(change my world, sugar! change my world!)
