Ring

I am a symbol of malleability
with the shape I’m in, I’d say that you can mold me
I am a block of clay, why don’t you solidify yourself with me
today?
And we’ll be some ugly rock on someone’s t.v. top..

You and I and our fading world
turn it up and down like a t.v. screen
flesh colour fading, fading away.

I am symbol of fading reality
but I’m also that cymbal you find in the symphony
I have two sides to me
but you have to touch them both in order to really
really play me
just put your hands, just put your hands on me
and bring me together.

Lalalalala

You are that ring around my finger
you are that ring around my heart
Just like the planet Saturn,
Ring and Sphere aren’t worth much apart
so “Planet” with me, because I am here
I am here,
Ring,ring,ringing in your ear.

I am symbol. I am so many symbols
I am stumbling for symbols but there’s a ring in everything that I say
You can mold a ring out of my play
and as you take the cymbals down to play, make a ring of sound.
And as you turn the t.v. colour down, there’s a ring of light
getting smaller, smaller, fading away, fading away.

O.K. Yah right.
But there’s just a simple black sky tonight
I don’t want to play “ringette” anymore
I don’t want to think, my mind is sore.
I don’t want to play “ringette” anymore
I don’t want to think, my mind is sore.

Yah yah yah

You are that ring around my finger
you are that ring around my heart
Just like the planet Saturn,
Ring and Sphere aren’t worth much apart
so “Planet” with me, because I am here
I am here, I am here
Ring,ring,ringing in your ear.

Yah yah yah

You are that ring around my finger
you are that ring around my heart
Just like the planet Saturn,
Ring and Sphere aren’t worth much apart
so “Planet” with me, because I am here
I am here, I am here
Ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ring, ringing in your ear.
Yeah.I am a symbol of malleability
