Dirt 02:43
when I am dead, don’t bury me wrap my body ‘round a tree plant me in the fields of waste where green is--by our hands--erased I will be gone, far gone you will be gone one day, far gone oh, the dirt is waiting patiently the dirt is waiting patiently and on this tree don’t leave my name or indicate there who is lain the tree will drink me up in time and leave behind no trace of mine I will be gone, far gone you will be gone one day, far gone oh, the dirt is waiting patiently the dirt is waiting patiently not ashes but returned to earth in proof that death is, too, rebirth. not ashes but returned to earth in proof that death is, too, rebirth. I will be gone, far gone you will be gone one day, far gone oh, the dirt is waiting patiently the dirt is waiting patiently the dirt is waiting patiently the dirt is waiting patiently

You carver! you hole boring through through, through who were you hiding from when you lied to me? I wonder if you wrote about it later. you were always so good at telling stories under your hands you know there was land in me did you think those hands could steal it from me? my spirit will burn down every colony you’re naked in my arms but I’m still waiting, waiting to see you to see you I am not a martyr I will not lie down, lie down and die for you, die for you You butcher! You carver! you hole boring through through, through you’re naked in my arms X 6 you're naked!

everywhere you walk there’s a shadow right behind it’s just hiding in the dark or it’s swallowed by the light if you try to tear it off It will wrap itself around or you’ll tangle up your legs and you’ll sink into the ground it’s your closest friend, how can you let it go? it’s your closest friend and it’s all you know (x2) it keeps itself alive just to wallow poisoning the well with the bitter pills it makes you swallow but you can never tell if you try to swear it off it will make your word a lie and you’ll live outside the truth ‘til the living makes you die it’s your closest friend, how can you let it go? it’s your closest friend and it’s all you know (x2) dear friend begone (x4) it’s your closest friend and it’s all you know it’s your closest friend, but you can let it go (x2) you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go you can let it go ...

I get the feeling I'm walking on the ceiling every thing is upside down and my head is reeling it's amazing this craziness inside me I'm hiding from hunters who'll never abide me my Self is beside me my Mind is outside me our voices are crying for TRUTH but you stay steady lying in my heart, profound violence and nothing can silence it (and nothing can silence it) but some time ago I learned the earth will go on living we burn our kingdoms down but the soil is forgiving yeah, some time ago I learned the earth will go on living we burn our kingdoms down but the soil is forgiving the soil is forgiving the soil is forgiving the soil is forgiving
