He took a watch on a chain from a waistcoat pocket
Unhooked the clasp
Flipped open the lid
Inside's a universe of constellations
Said "What's the time Mr Rabbit?"
He said, "It’s closing time"

Won't be long we hit the low point on the high road
If you do your sums
Or the high point on the dirt road
Then we'll soon be done
I said Buddy tell me how does this work
On this lamppost it read DOG
It read AND
It read EVE
It read EVOL
Backwards

Old man, what do you see
We're just bugs heading into a windscreen
The constellations pulsed and glowed
Reading the future in the guts of a cane toad
The angle of stars when you're conceived
The point of return written into your genes
I conceive when I breathe.

There's monsters coming to get you

Closing time
Dreams come true
We collude
There's monsters coming to get you
 
Break down or breaking through
DMTv
Give me the Nembutol
Banging at my door
Banging at my door
Stirring the witches brew
Kicking off downstairs
Stuck in a déjà vu
Banging at my door
Banging at my door

He took a bleached white bone from his pocket (an inside pocket)
Mumbled a spell
Sound like a song
Petitioned his gods with prayer as if his life depended on it
Said "What's the time Mr Rabbit?"
He said, "There is no time"
Used the bone to let some blood fall on the parched land
Then he passed it on
He let my blood spill on the parched land
I took up his song

Sang,
"Buddy tell me how does this work?"
With my blood
He wrote, AND
He wrote, EVE
He wrote, DOG
He wrote, EVOL
Backwards.

Old man, what do you see?
We're just bugs heading into a windscreen
The constellations pulsed and glowed
I saw the future in the guts of a cane toad
The angle of stars when you're conceived
The futures melting, melting like ice cream
I conceive when I dream

There's monsters coming to get you

Closing time
Dreams come true
We collude
There's monsters coming to get you

Closing time (Break down or breaking through)
Dreams come true (DMTv)
We collude (Give me the Nembutol)
Banging at my door
Banging at my door
Stirring the witches brew
Kicking off downstairs
Stuck in a déjà vu
Banging at my door
Banging at my door

We murder the hero
