You seem a little on the high side, disconnected from me
Been a little too anxious and a little too sweet
Have you been chopping down treetops tree after tree?
Have you been digging for diamonds at the bottom of the sea?

He said I'm taking the farm out from under your knees
Said I'm taking the air and the rag that you're bleeding upon
Come on meet me where the highways and the one-way streets
Come together like the motion comes together with my feet
Well top and bottom it's all the same to me
Until all my breathing air is gone

Well you feel it in the ozone zone
You can feel it in the knees knees knees
You can feel it in the dirt that's going under your feet
You can feel it in the highways and the one-way streets
When you're digging for diamonds at the bottom of the sea

You seem a little on the high side, disconnected from me
Been a little too anxious and a little too sweet
I'll be chopping down treetops tree after tree
When I'm confusing my highways for a one-way street

    General CommentI'm only guessing, but isn't he singing:
    "you seem a little on the high side"

    well whatever it is, it's one magnificent song, taken from an equally magnificent album.

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the lyrics with the question marks above are:

    "said I'm taking the air, and the rag that you're bleeding upon"

    This song makes me :)

    General CommentTo me this song is about drugs and how they literally "take the farm" out from under your knees, how people who use drugs "chop down treetops" and "dig for diamonds at the bottom of the sea" where they will find no real meaning. This song, to me, is about the counterproductive nature of drugs and the people that use them, the way they're searching for something by using something that will never lead them to what they're looking for.
