lyrics

Said the earthworm to the grub
It is time to send our son before the masses
Said the turtle to the toad
Do they know not what they’ve done?
Said the tiger to the antelope
Can they undo what they’ve done before we parish?
So the monkey raised his gavel
Let them pray upon their weak until they’re weary

Down the dirt road, wild and shy,
The young boy carried their message
There’s a lion in his pocket
There are lambs beneath his feet and vultures overhead
The sky don’t lie

Said the beggar to the merchant
Can you spare a little bread to keep me moving?
Said the farmer to his grove
Why must they steal the fruit you bear?
Said the tiger to the antelope
Can they undo what they’ve done before we perish?
Said the prophet to his priest
Let’s cage these fucking beasts while they linger

When that boy reached the town
There was no one to be found.
