Read me!
I’m a marquee
shining over head

Guard dog
with a yard sign
written in red

I don’t mean to
alarm you
but don’t touch me

Bike chain
on a highway
speeding underfoot

Blue flame
a fan blade
hope I’m understood

I don’t want to
have to harm you
so don’t touch me

No one could blame me
it’s easy to see how I’d feel this way
but don’t try to save me
man I don’t want to be saved!

Read me!
I’m a marquee
singing overhead

Good lord
I’m a billboard
heed what I’ve said

I don’t need to
mislead you
so don’t touch me
