lyrics

One little death
one broken body
scatttered like seeds from the plow
left all alone
on an island unknown
shippwrecked from family and home
from high on a hill I stood fearless until
from beneath me a rumble awoke
then the earth heaved a sigh
and my path broke like pie
and I cried as I feel from the sky
ahhhhhhh
what am I to be?
tangled bones among the tree roots
what will be my name?
sulfur, iron, silt and clay
where is it I'll go?
is it far beneath the earth?
Lolite! find the light!
once my heart stopped
birds flew down from treetops
and they clipped my long hair with their beaks
weaved into their nest
to warm robins breast
my tresses served considerably
the beetles marched over
to demand a look over
and decided I looked good enough to eat
I will feed your family
thumbs knuckles and toes
plant me in a garden
red blood for your rose
drop me in the ocean
but where will I rise?
Lolite! Find the light!
the foxes there were three
took my ankles and a knee
and they rolled them back home happily
and all the fear-laiden muck
wrapped in veils in my gut
were taken and tossed into the sea
all the while I lay still
gazing up at that hill
as the creatures sang blessings to me
bless you
flesh aged to wood
and there a tree stood
blood boiled to magma
spilt from a wounded mountain
bones crumbled to sand
but where will they land?
Lolite! find the light!
rest on my eyes little window to the sun
rest on my eyes little window
come out of my pocket
don't leave me all alone
come out of my pocket little window
rest on my eyes
don't leave me all alone
come out of my pocket little window
