lyrics

i want to be a doctor. i want to be a vet.
i want to be what the universe doesn't know it needs yet.
i want to be a firefighter, albert stanley   
right now i'm gordon ramsay 

when the letters stop comin, when the jury comes in
i want to be a straight line
i want be present for the shrill chime of my verdict

a guard in a white uniform, a sixteen year old not home
i'm perched on the pavement clutching a phone
galvanised by the knowledge that I'm alone 

learning about straight lines
a billion people with little x's for lives
a billion people joined in a collective sigh 

when I emerge and roll the boulder back i'll be much bolder and tactful too.
the slate will be wiped and i'll start anew. 

i'll be a straight line
i'll be present for the shrill chime of my verdict
