Lyrics

See the people all in line
What's makin' them look at me
Can't imagine that their minds
Are thinkin' the same as me

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

My head's attracted to
A magnetic wave of sound
With the streams of coloured circles
Makin' their way around.

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

Can't seem to puzzle out the signs
My senses form a micro line
Get a hold of yourself now baby
See I need you to help now baby
Get a hold of yourself now baby

Put your head down to the ground
And listen to your mind
If you can't spell what you found
I know that you're not my kind

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening

Can't seem to puzzle out the signs
My senses form a micro line
Get a hold of yourself now baby
See I need you to help now baby
Get a hold of yourself now baby

See the people all in line
What's makin' them look at me
Can't imagine that their minds
Are thinkin' the same as me

I can hear the grass grow I can hear the grass grow
I see rainbows in the evening
