about

Mrs Falestra (Rat’s mom) and Rat’s guardian angel Robert Pollard (of the band Guided By Voices) try to understand what exactly IS going on under that beanie.

lyrics

Pollard: Francis is sleeping
Lives in a dream
Likes to count horses
Mrs. Fallestra and Pollard: Francis was not a mistake

Pollard: He’s got a purpose, a reason for being

Mrs. Fallestra and Pollard:
Since he was small, there was a tiny light
Francis was not afraid
He kept his mouth shut tight
His eyes were alive…

Pollard: Francis is dreaming
Lives on a cloud
Vessels like castles
Head like a velvet sponge

He’s got a purpose, a reason for being

Mrs. Fallestra and Pollard:
Since he was small, there was a tiny light
Francis was not afraid
He kept his mouth shut tight
His eyes were alive…

Now he’s awake -there is a tiny light
Francis is not afraid, no
He keeps his mouth shut tight
His eyes are alive

He is unknown...
