"Beat a Drum [WXRT]" as written by and Michael Mills Peter Buck....
The sun reflected in the back of my eye
I knocked my head against the sky

The dragonflies are busy buzzing me
Seahorses if we were in the sea

Halfway from coal, halfway to diamond.
My fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

I'm gathering as far as I can reach
We're perched up on the precipice
And this is what I've seen

This is all I want it's all I need
This is all I am it's everything
This is all I want it's all I need.

A Blue Jay hectors from the felled catalpa tree
Doctorate in science and a theologian's
Dream

The dragonflies are trying to lecture me
Seahorses if we were in the sea

This is all I want it's all I need
This is all I am it's everything
This is all I want it's all I need.

Beat a drum for me, like a butterfly wing
Tropical storm across the ocean

But don't explain, I'm sure I'll want to know.
But don't forget, we're just halfway from coal

This is all I want it's all I need
This is all I am it's everything
This is all I want it's all I need.
