Exuma – A Place Called Earth Lyrics

Hemlocks
The front wing of time
Backwards is life
Sideways is the spirit of life
Frontways [frontless?] three times is death
Land of evil!
Land of sin!
Your own evil will do you in!

[Chorus]
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala

A man should, a man should be free
From his birth to his death
I’ve searched this whole land through
I’ve seen no free man yet
I’ve seen no free woman yet
[Wailing cry]

I saw the sperm swim to crack the egg
Then I saw an arm and I saw her leg
The journey was long
The journey was wet
The journey was hot
The journey was cold

[Chorus]
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala

I know that you dead because I’ve been in your head
I know you’re dead, I know you dead because of all the things that you’ve said
I know you’re dead, I been in your head, I been in your head, oh

[Chorus]
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala

The tube, the tube brought the food
I kicked and I punched, yes I was rude
I was so, I was so down in a watery cold
Tucked safely away in my mother’s womb
The [? Hear?]
The [hear?] it cut my face!

Then I first met
I first met, I first met, I first met
You know, I first met the human race
They put a rubber hand over my mouth
Oh, so I could not shout
They smacked my behind and I screamed out
A stranger in the land
Then I could not see until I was nine days old
Until I was nine days old
Then my sight became tenfold

I went ahead and I got my fill
Then I stood still
This was the life, this was the death
This was the beginning, this was the end
On a place called Earth, on a place called Earth
On a place called earth, on a place called earth

[Chorus]
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala

This was the beginning, this was the ending
This was the life, this was the death
On a place called Earth, on a place called Earth
On a place called earth

[Chorus]
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala
Lalalalala, Lalalalala, Lalalalala

This was the beginning, the end
The life and the death
On a place called Earth
Land of evil, Land of sin
Your own evil will do you in
