Shapeshifter 02:44
shapeshifter . . . . . . . . . . . . it's been a while and you're not the same though you have the same face - have the same name . . . CHORUS . . . you’re a like a snake shedding your skin when it gets too small - when it gets too thin you're a shapeshifter - I am one too and over time you have changed too dyed your hair pink then dyed it blue i’m like a snake shedding my skin when it gets too small - when it gets too thin I'm a shapeshifter - I thought you knew . . . BRIDGE . . . sometimes we are mice and cats other times we are gloves and hats sometimes we couldn't be less alike other times we'll ride a tandem bike sometimes I am plaid and you are paisley sometimes I like the way we clash sometimes it drives me crazy what shape is life? what shape are you? what shape are we? what shape is true? we are opposites we are the same we come and go and we always change we are like snakes shedding our skins when they get too small - when they get too thin we are shapeshifters - you know it's true

JE M’EN FOUS c’est rien de tout if you wanna talk to us while we’re waiting for the bus you can ask but be polite and don’t expect us to be nice i was taught a should be kind so i was the first a THOUSAND times don’t make the proposition if you can’t take rejection I DON’T OWE YOU CAUSE I DON’T KNOW YOU we are sisters boekbinder you can dance but don’t grind her unless you ask permission first and if you don’t we’ll make you hurt JE M’EN FOUS c’est rien de tout
