Keep your tongue in your mouth
Though I know you need to say ??
If your words get out
They will surely destroy.
Miss, are you spoken for? Because I'd like to speak at you
Miss, are you spoken for?

What have you seen?
Well, I try to pretend.
Using only my stories
And all lies of man ??
Keep you tongue in your mouth
Though I know you need to say ??
But if your words get out
They will surely destroy

Let's try this another time, ??
I wasn't thinking clearly. ??

I wandered off the path one day
Great watcher turned, and I ran away.
I lost myself amongst some trees
Birds and lizards pay no mind to me.
Sat atop the mushroom grove
I drank the tea of forest folk
I did not mind that I sat alone
Until a Hoping toad approached

He spoke of things you'd not believe
He whispered truths that tickled me
I lost myself in fairytales
But, truth be told, these tales were real
The toad and I, we shared a smoke
I lit my ears as for hours he spoke
Bestowed his knowledge upon me
The women he'd known, the places he'd seen

Everyone was tripping, the whole world was dancing
And I thought, I thought...
Maybe I was tripping, the animals were singing
And I thought, I thought...
I knew this song, I knew this song...
I knew this song.

And it's finally making sense now.

I found a way to attain the lies of man ??
Make that a way... to destroy everything.

Keep your tongue in your mouth.
Is that too much to ask of you?

I sat for hours as he spoke,
Asked him why he came a toad.
He said he'd always been this way
He was not disguised, just for today.

In the forest, we're up 'til dawn.
I licked his back and finally saw
So many colors I'd never seen
The here and now, the in between.

He's not how I thought he was
But I like her much better as.
It's not like I thought it was
But I feel that I've been despised.
It's not like I thought it was
but I like it much better as.
It's not like I thought it was
but I feel that I've been despised.

    I believe it is "I knew this song, I knew this song...
    I knew this song."

    "He who I thought he was"

    That is what i got for now
