lyrics

You can find me picking berries on the side of the path
With a TV to sedate me stitched right on my back
Boiled wine from the river, making love on the shore
Bed of embers now a mirror of the thousand stars above

So I don't need that power, it can't get me what I need
You never had any power, you're living in a dream
In a lie

Took a trip down the Cross River
To get away from all those obelisks of glass
Met a man atop the highest hill
And ate my guitar in a fire of each different self I am trapped in while dreaming of
Warships of classes in unchanging action
Traps me against my image of God
Sex in the shadows of sweet intentions
Digital frontiers leave shamans to die
My teeth are bared for whatever future we've been left to feed on
Trees on TV screens and water conjured in a factory
Howling at the oil well for something to eat
Howling at the oil well for something to eat
