To fix it all with lightning paw
Or explode from joy and life
To break the bars with piss and scars
Just hold me beneath the tumbling stars
And tell me it's all right

Lightning paw
Pretty little lightning paw

There is a valley all swimming in light
There is a wonder in worry in life
There is a reason and there is a light
There is a valley all buried in light

There is a reason and beauty in life
There is a wonder and there is a light
The wind in the trees and the tumbling light
The whispering stars in the clouds tonight

Lightning paw
Pretty little lightning paw

Free born
All our children
Free born

    General CommentThis is a song by Thee Silver Mountain Reveries, not ASMZ.

    General CommentIt is by the Silver Mountain Reveries, but all their songs are grouped under A Silver Mount Zion so as to avoid confusion. (You do know they're the same band, right?)

    Anyway, I'm curious as to who Lightning Paw is. Judging from the cover of the EP, it's a character from a book. Which book is it? And why did they write a song about him?

    General CommentOr perhaps Lightning Paw is another reference to Wanda?

    General Commentif you go on the ASMZ website, the picture that accompanies the lyrics to this is a dog in a cage in an animal testing facility. so i think personally that is what it is about.
    the lyrics make sense in this context...free born...break the bars with piss and scars...lightning paw could be some kind of electrolysis testing taking place on the animals
