Well the royal generation has hatched and now they're ready to fly They've got one job to do before their wings fall off, then they die And when the females emerge, they're ready for a life of servitude So those clumsy virgins fly and go to meet their dude Super colony Under a spruce tree We make our own medicine and live in a comfortable mound It's like our own hometown So we gather all the seed we need for the coming year And try to shake the parasites and see what we can commandeer And if you're a good queen, you better go secure that nest And multiply your new family cause you know that's what you do best Living in the underground There's rivals around We fight our own battles and we eat our victims deep inside of our mound Underground On the edge of town Under a spruce tree Super colony

I walk into The only bank That will accept me Someone of my rank My knees are knockin' I got a stank But I was rockin' Before I sank I got nothin' to my name But the reeds are swayin' to and fro All I can expect is the same Yet now I'm sayin', behold and lo I'm sittin' here with a choice And one is violence I think I'll go with the wind Disappear in silence

You’re asking me if I understand I don’t know, I just do what I can If it’s not enough, well that’s fine I’ll make it up in my own sweet time If you don’t mind, I’m just gonna live my life Not to trim, but to leave all alone, bears a little more fruit when it gets full grown So now as I lean over your meaning’s edge And I cope with the dizziness of the things that you have left unsaid Then when I wake and I rise up from my bed And I try to remember the source of the line, but I realize I’m out of my head So I lay back down, and I close my eyes And I notice it’s all very clear, it just took me a while to realize Now the waters are rising, and the river’s swole And the fish rise up like birds, and the rays of light beam into my soul So I scan the horizon searching for the stone And I know when the time is right, I will have to head out on my own When I was young, they tried to clip my wings Now I’m older, and a little more wise, and I try not to dwell upon these things
