"Titan" as written by and Seth Jabour Harrison Haynes....
Walk 5 feet above the mountain,
The landscape remains the same.
Walk 5 feet below the ground,
The landscape is unchanged.
I know my home's eroding,
The mountain rise again.
I've seen the ocean rising,only the stones remain.
I've heard the Titan stirring,
I don't know who to blame.

This water tastes like wine.
This water tastes like turpentine.

I didn't travel all this way
Just to leave a trail of tears behind.

I didn't travel all this way
Just to leave my hands and nails behind.

I didn't travel all this way
Just to drag a tail behind.

Everybody prays that
The rain will shatter the dam.
The water will turn the mortar to sand.
The engineers have done
All they can
but we're damned.

Little lost lamb,
I've done all I can,
The barn door has blown shut,
And the brook is rising up.

To move,
To breath,
We must cherish these.
We have these things like feet.

The townies saw a monster
But the monster saw a man.
The coroner's report found a flower in his hand.
Before pitchforks and torches
Ferdinand made his last stand.

The farmer dropped his sword
And went back to his plow.
The children it had frightened
Were even more scared now.
The minister and mayor told the people to be proud.

And when they went to bed
They tossed and turned all night
But when the sun came up
They never saw the light.
And when the worms had finished them.
They knew that they were right.

This mountain has
A mind of it's own.

    General CommentI take it as a fable with classical and medieval references. One of the most interesting of their songs, probably because of its narrative quality. And it has better rhymes than Reformat.

    General CommentIt's something different each time I hear it, one time it's about ecology and how man is destroying the world, the next time i can't help but picture a giant made of rock living amongst the mountains, heh.
