And the worms in the wind are beginning to blow
All the animals bend
And we watch as they go
Through a hole in the night
That's as wide as a sheet
As all the beautiful people go floating up over the street

    General CommentIn the version at San Diego, CA - Terrastock II Festival, I'm pretty sure it goes like this:

    And the worms in the wind are beginning to blow,
    Baby brother gives in,
    And we watch as he goes,
    Through a hole in the night,
    That's as wide(white?) as a sheet,
    As all the beautiful people go floating up over the street.

    By the way, I think those lines are the most magnificent things ever written.

    General CommentAt the Crocodile Cafe in Seattle he said before the song "If the earth lost its gravity, since we're heavier creatures, at least at the first millisecond, the first thing that would happen would be that the worms would start blowing around."
    He sang 'baby brother' here, too.

    General CommentOn a live recording I have, before Song Against Sex I think, Jeff begins to sing what I think is part of this song. It went "And we once had a home that was hurling through space..." and then he says "And then the gravity that held all of our houses in place? Well, not anymore.
    Anyway, I think this is a pretty little song about the end of the world.

    Song Meaning"And the worms in the wind are beginning to blow, cause the worms in the wind when the world loses all it's gravity. Well, in my head, that is what would happen in the little ball that you turn upside down, and when you bring it back up is all that snow in the santa clause and shit..."

    I think it has to do with a snow globe and the end of the word

    General CommentFor a 45 second song it holds alot of imagination. It means that there is some sort of black hole or some kind of vaccuum sucking everything on earth into it...But, in a slow, peaceful, calm way.
