They Might Be Giants - The Statue Got Me High

[Verse 1]
The statue got me high
The statue got me high
The monument of granite
Sent a beam into my eye

The statue made me die
The statue made me die
It took my hand it killed me
And it turned me to the sky

[Chorus]
The stone it called to me
(and now I see the things the stone has shown to me)
A rock that spoke a word
(an animated mineral it can be heard)
And though I once preferred a human being's company
They pale before the monolith that towers over me

[Verse 2]
The statue got me high
The statue got me high
The truth is where the sculptor's chisel
Chipped away the lie

The statue made me fry
The statue made me fry
My coat contained a furnace
Where there used to be a guy
[Chorus 2]
The stone it called to me
(and now I see the things the stone has shown to me)
A rock that spoke a word
(an animated mineral it can be heard)
And as the screaming fire engine siren filled the air
The evidence had vanished from my charred and smoking chair

[Bridge 1 2x]
And what they found
Was just a statue standing
Where the statue got me high

[Chorus 3]
And now it is your turn
(your turn to hear the stone and then your turn to burn)
The stone it calls to you
(you can't refuse to do the things it tells you to)
And as the screaming fire engine siren fills the air
The evidence will vanish from your charred and smoking chair

[Bridge 2]
And what they found
Was just a statue standing
Where the statue got me high
And what they'll find
Is just a statue standing
Where the statue got you
High
