A flatulent mind can rest at ease
We’re floating through time in the redwood trees
What’s yours isn’t mine and that’s a tease
But I’m feeling fine ‘cause I can breathe
And I’m on a ride that will never cease
And infinite ties ripple through my leaves
Bellyaching and crying ‘cause we yearn to see
Beyond our own time in the redwood trees
The wind rips across the golden turf it’s mesmerizing me
Stones skipping on the water’s surface far as I can see
A pterodactyl flapping in the breeze
I hitch a ride and hide out for the night in the trees

We’re running out of time, they said
Something’s got to give, they said
But nothing around here’s going bad
It’s a lonely note, but I ain’t sad
No, no, no…

Because we’re achin’ to discover
Some ancient forgotten lover
Who’s been hackin’ away
With a pick-ick-ick-axe
TO MY BRAAA8888iiiinNNN
They say we’re rotten to the core
And pretty soon we’re all gonna hit the floor
But I really don’t believe ‘em
And I’m leavin’ ‘em behind again…

A gelatinous mind can rest at ease
We’re floating through time in the redwood trees
A vague scent of death dangles in the breze
But I don’t even mind ‘cause I’m at peace
And I’m on a ride that will never cease
And infinite ties ripple through my leaves
We’re wakin’ and dyin’ infinity
We’re wastin’ our time in the redwood trees…
