It don't feel too good to be
Dead in the 21st century
I am dirt but I can be
A home for wayward hungry seeds

I need seed
I need seed
To throw up the grass
To throw up the trees

Near a river near the sea
She brings her liquid straight to me
Springs from a rock underneath
Oh sunny day and grass so green

I need seed
I need seed
Throw up the grass
Throw up the trees

It don't feel too good to be
Dead in the 21st century
I am dirt but I can be
A home for wayward hungry seeds

I need seed
I need seed
Throw up the grass
Throw up the trees

Near a river near the sea
She brings her liquid straight to me
Springs from a rock underneath
Oh sunny day and grass so green

I need seed
I need seed
Throw up the grass
Throw up the trees

    My InterpretationWhy do I enjoy this song so much? Cuz it's catchy of course. But also, because I find it interesting in that it seems to be about being an optimistic dead person. Silly, right? But it talks about being dead and thus one with the earth in burial. Now it looks forward to helping things around it grow. So it's kinda just a creepy yet charming ditty about nature. Obviously, it could be symbolic. But I don't know what it'd be and am just now getting to know/love Thee Oh Sees.

    Song ComparisonSimilar to My Bloody Valentine's Paint a Rainbow. Both songs take a novel look at death in general and specifically at corpses.
