​Words Are Like (Demo)

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the compilation album They Got Lost (2002).

Words are like the middle class
A drinking glass, a mask
Words are like a Spanish town
A wedding gown, a crown

Words are like a happy dream
A racing team, a wooden beam
A seam

Words are like a rusty nail
A minor scale, a snail
Words are like a postcard stamp
A highway ramp, a cramp

Words are like kaleidoscopes
The taste of soap, a billy goat
A coat
Words are like a teenage star
A prison guard, a faded scar
A car
