once upon a time
for the lord
the skies they parted

so a few must die
to bring us back
to where we started

two at a time (x4)
do what you're told

Each and every kind
bird gathered up
this tiny boat
the future of the world

for those that drowned
it made no sense
they should have known
because he told them so

two at a time (x4)
do what youre told

i can see the rains a comin
to wash away the filth and vermin
hand and hand we'll watch them runnin

in the summertime
long ago the skies they parted
so a few had died
to bring us back to where we started

two at a time (x4)

    General Commenti also love this song, but actually, i think the kids say "cookies!" because i think the guys promised them cookies after singing

    General CommentWhy do musicians always do these "hidden tracks"? Is there a difference to the record company if a track is credited and given its own track stop or not?

    General CommentI really got a different feel from this song, I kind of got the feeling that it was sarcastic, with the "do what you're told"
    and the children singing about "so a few have died". And the "hand in hand we watch them runnin" Whole thing really creeped me out the first couple of listens. Just my opinion though.
