A note we wrote the other day
to any mice who pass this day
on crumbed and sugared counter tops
we must consist your traffic stop

in their defense they don't refuse
nonetheless, we've come to you
snapping traps and poisioned beans
with far less diplomatic means

orange spider, orange leaf
orange spider, orange leaf
orange spider, orange leaf
confirms my deepest held belief

    General Commenta note we wrote the other day
    to any mice who pass this way
    on crumbed and sugared countertop:

    "we must insist
    your traffic STOP."

    in their defense, they don't refuse
    but nonetheless we've come to use
    snapping traps and poison beans
    (far less diplomatic means)

    orange spider,
    orange leaf,
    confirms my deepest held belief.

    General CommentWhat do you all think the spider and the leaf in these songs represent? And what do the mice in this one represent, and what is symbolized in the "less diplomatic means" of removing them?

    General Commentthe spider songs are the most amazing part of the cd, but i dont really understand any symbolic meaning to them.

    they ask the mice to stop, and even though they do, they still go to the exterminator,

    maybe the mice represent people in this.
    and although they do as god asks, he still takes them away from us? who knows. i just love how he gets kinda sad when he says he wants the exterminator to kill them
