    He swam steadily for most of the day. Suddenly
    he found himself approaching an enormous
    floating cavern. Could it be an island? Pinocchio
    looked closed and he saw two huge rows of
    sharp, yellow teeth and he realized his mistake.

    So he would sulk and drink and mope
    and cross his arms and hope to die.
    And then a fairy came one night
    to bring this sorry boy to life.
    She pulled some strings,
    spun him about,
    that boy sprang up,
    and began to shout,
    "My arms, my legs, my heart, my face,
    they are alive."
    And she would cry, "liar, liar,
    What have I done?
    You're no lover and I'm no fighter."

    The story goes on.

    So he would buy her things and
    kiss her hair to show he was for real.
    And she would take those gifts and
    kisses though just stringing him along.
    She knew about those wooden boys,
    it's an empty love to fill the void
    Pinocchio, oh boy, how your nose has grown
    So he would cry, "liar, liar,
    I'll prove it to you"

    But then it grew.
    He had grown tired of her
    so it was true.
    He left her apartment
    and he walked all night long,
    'til he was stopped by the shore of the ocean.
    But still he walked on
    amongst the whales and waves
    and screamed, "liar, liar"
    and his wooden body floated away.
    He just drifted away.

    And now I wonder how I was made
    Now I wonder how I was made
    My arms, my legs, my heart, my face,
    my name is Driftwood.
