The moth you found looked like
it was painted black and white
like some shivering little pup
inside a coffee cup
stay here, stay here for a while
you can lay me, you can lay me down
i think we've figured something out
if only for a little while

the frog did slowly die
when it became cracked and dry
in the air conditioner
behind the convenience store

you're water you're water you're air now
and i'm not sure if i'll be okay
if i cannot breathe cannot drink you
i won't last a day-- please
stay here, stay here for a while
you can lay me you can lay me down
i think we've figured something out
if only for a little while

the stitches that divide
the highways left and right
and we are elephants with lights
it's a wonder we don't collide

    General CommentNothing can describe the beauty of this song. I think it's about lost innocence.
