I slept in the bed of a horseshoe lake last night
A cartridge crown and a shroud of silvery light
Oh mirror of Mercury
Am I poison enough to be
Phosphate and DDT

I take my leave through the channels to the west
I rise with the salt 'til the trees are white and bent
Ploughshare of iron rust
Return to me as red dust
Now we're feeding the citrus trees
Bringing your blood to me
Am I poison enough to be
Phosphate and DDT

And where I fall
You take me in
And where I fall
Oh fortune
Begin
