Lyrics[edit]

    I'm so happy with my feet on the ground
    So happy, my head spins around
    Quite content to sit on this fence
    Quite content now a little bit older
    The mirror people one day shall be free
    The mirror people laugh at you and laugh at me
    The mirror people know not how to cry
    The mirror people scream and scream and scream inside
    Wish I could be nothing at all
    Wish I should be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    Time goes by so slow
    When you start to grow
    Time goes by so slow
    When you start to grow
    Yes it's true we're all in a gutter
    Yes it's true please set me free
    The Christian says
    I love love everybody
    You and you, and you can be free
    But I'm so happy with my feet on the ground
    So happy my head spins around
    Quite content to sit on this fence
    Quite content
    Now a little bit older
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    I wish I could be nothing at all
    Wish I could be nothing at all
    Time goes by so slow
    When you start to grow
    Time goes by so slow
    When you start to grow
    Time... Time... Time
