cant see forward you cant turn back
are you lookin out at sea or down a long long track
spider spinnin webs well we weave too
you might catch somethin somethin might catch you

mind goes runnin
i just wave it by
when your mind stops movin
all it does is lie
i was born in july

i learned a lesson from a vine the other day
never leavin the ground but always crawlin away
sight without eyes sound without lips
form with no plan dance with no hips

and it wont know itself
it could never even try
but it brings out flowers before it dies
and it cant tell a lie

you can buy shoes for walkin but it the shoe dont fit
well it might feel like its time to sit
sometimes you make the world sometimes it makes you
the nights a starry stage the days a dirty zoo

and i sure feel like a bird
on a cloudy spring day
fallin asleep in the middle of may

and what will become of us
when the world runs out of fun and stuffs
our heads into the ground til we cant breathe
youve no excuse to live a way
that kills you every single day
you better pick flowers and plant seeds
pick flowers and plant seeds
before you leave
