China Rabbit (Blowing out Candles)

i want to be

machine made
inanimate
i want to be
a china rabbit

i want to have
a power cut
switched off
like a tv set

i want to borrow
benards watch
a desert island
cut off

If i’d been sure
You made me doubt
if i was lit
I flickered out

i want to be
machine made
inanimate
i want to be
a china rabbit
