lyrics

Virginia walked to the canyon. She said,
"My small brain can't handle its depth.
It makes me insignificant, I can't stand to feel that nothingness"
And Virginia jumped into the canyon instead.

'Cause it was big and she felt small
And she was naked up against it all
'Cause it was big and she felt small
And it was empty and she could never fill it up...

Emilio went on a blind date with Beth
She asked what he thought of the national debt
He scratched his hair and and he asked to be excused so he could use the head
And Emilio ran to the subway instead

'Cause she was big and he felt small
And he was naked up against it all
'Cause she was big and he felt small
And she was worldly and he could never measure up...

I once looked over a big precipice
Thought about the fall 'til I remembered this
Nothing in this whole world has failed to fit in my head and still leave room so
I reached up tall and I grabbed my one wish

'Cause I was big and it felt small
And I was towering above it all
'Cause I was big and it felt small
But I was lonely 'cause nobody could make it up

Canyon....
