Lyrics

On Norwood Avenue there was a shop
Where on my way to school each day I’d stop
And in the window I would see a scene
Made up of miniature and tiny things
The order and the small simplicities
They sure made clear and perfect sense to me
But then I turned and looked to see the world
Where there’s no sense and everything’s absurd
I ran into the woods and hid
And from then on I knew there should be
Click and grid (what’s that you absent kid?)
Click and grid (what’s that you absent kid?)
Gimme Click Gimme Grid..

Now Norwood Avenue is a memory
And all my memories mean so much to me
But many years have passed and now I see
It’s all about the small simplicities
Like beauty in the tiny hidden things
And honesty between the beating wings
But then I turn and look to see the world
Where there’s no sense and everything’s absurd
I run into the woods and hide
And what I’ll say before I die is
Click and grid (what’s that you absent kid?)
Click and grid (what’s that you absent kid?)

Gimme Click Gimme Grid
If I say that I did anything, I’ll say that’s what I did
Gimme Click and Grid
If I say that I did anything, I’ll say that’s what I did
Gimme Click Gimme Grid
If I say I did anything, I’ll say that’s what I did
Gimme Click Gimme Grid
If I say I did anything, I’ll say that’s what I did
Gimme Click Gimme Grid
If I say that I did anything…
