evil witches don’t eat chicken, they’re all vegan,
they fly to Target to do some shopping on the weekend,
& they take long walks with the stray cats from the alley,
it’s after midnight, but the witches aren’t sleepy..

village monsters do their taxes without cheating,
crossword puzzles are relaxing in the evening,
they grow eggplant and tomatoes in their gardens,
so village monsters don’t need anybody’s pardon,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
++until you’ve been there, until you go, yeah,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
+++until you’ve loved someone who’s different..

on the subway there’s a stranger who reminds you
of that one kid from the 4th grade, who sat behind you,
softly crying for some reason after recess,
on the walk home you think about them in the darkness,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
++until you’ve been there, until you go, yeah,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
+++until you’ve loved someone who’s different,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
++until you’ve been there, until you go, yeah,
++you don’t know what you don’t know,
++until you’ve loved someone who’s different,
+++until you love someone who’s different…
