lyrics

she stands but five feet tall and she can see the shore
don’t need a booster on the floor
her smaller stature firmly heated in debate
is it just irony or fate?

it sounds impossible she’ll never be the same
sounds like a B-movie refrain
her body can’t contain the magnitude inside
while people start to run and hide

she don’t need a tonic to be well worth weighted
and thinks that the physical is over-rated
once she knows she’ll never ever be compliant
crane you’re neck if she’s standing up
now she’s projecting a giant

below they look like little bugs in little cars
below they stand and look in awe
one towering titan will she save us? will she crush
our tiny city into dust?

for though she’s small
her projections on the wall
light the figments of their minds
up a skyscraper she climbs
to the top, damsel in hand
ever up airplanes be damned
feeling surely she will fall
knowing it’s not real at all

she don’t need a tonic to be well worth weighted
and thinks that the physical is over-rated
once she knows she’ll never ever be compliant
crane you’re neck if she’s standing up
now she’s projecting a giant

she’s leaving all her friends, now she’s is leaving earth
out into silent space she’s birthed
10 million light years beyond reason beyond mind
forgotten body left behind

she don’t need a tonic to be well worth weighted
and thinks that the physical is over-rated
once she knows she’ll never ever be compliant
crane you’re neck if she’s standing up
now she’s projecting a giant

"I wanted to book bands I thought would make people stop and say "hey what is this?" and then say "whoa this is great" Toys And Tiny Instruments was one of the first groups I thought of. "
