Oh, when morning light unwinds us,
and I look behind us
to see all of yesterday
in the shiny lines of slime we made,
and our intertwining trails,
I’m glad we’re snails.

Oh we’ll never go too fast, wearing full-body casts,
and we’ll never get too far, living out of our cars
with only grass for gas,

And it’s hard to be so gross, with a body like a runny nose
stuck into an armpit, and stuffed in a glove compartment,
But I know I’m not alone,

And if we take it slow take it slow take it slow
we’ll always be home.

Oh, wrap your eyes around me,
I love how they surround me!
When you hug me with your eyes so,
do I look like a Picasso?

Oh you might not be a charmer, in your snotty suit of armour,
and I might be a headcase, wound up like an old cassette tape
but together we’ll be warmer.

Holed up in these old fossils, we’ll always live a snail-shell
away from each other, always short-distance lovers,
and it might feel impossible,

But if we take it slow take it slow take it slow
we’ll always be home.
