Ripe Fruit 03:49
All my blues fell off the wall I sold the space In a fieldsong mine belongs Lord, what should I tell them? I've come an awful mile What age are we stranded? Where's a god to call? It's a ripe fruit and all the seeds I spit Begin to bloom And I depend on bloom. Radio wires go all for luck Odds and ends with a plus and minus charge That's energy for ya We all wanna flip the switch And spin the propeller, And open up the fridge It's a day's work and all the sweat and tears It's worth the loot. And I depend on loot. Way up from the magnet guts Spun a world like ours When will the cogs and wheels rust away like mars. Is anyone recording us from up above the well? Dangle me on strings Puppeteer with wings Way up from the magnet guts Spawn our eyes and limbs Out came the embryo Out came the oxygen Somewhere there's a satellite Tracking all our moves Wake us when we're dead Halo on my head.
You've been invited by the law you've been indicted by the law no cover in shadow they see how you've been only resemble not my my my fault mandible, howling without no moon out on the summit in the squall friend of the raven and her claw fly over gander away with the sun one day i'll feather but trouble for now lost my wits flapping my elbows down i wanna live in a tree i wanna bathe in a creek like a wild beast cause my life on the town ain't free. don't wanna wrestle a bear don't wanna die from a poisonous snake bite So here in the town, I stay. wilderness awake for now til the law comes to drill you up hide away your lifeblood they want to make machines run with your soul. that's the goal. primative dig a hole and build a nest evolution robbed me can't survive with this body in the wild. feral child.
