lyrics

Nature, all around me
Crossing monkeys to the other side
Sitting pretty brittle with my pretty little bride

I think he loves me truly
I really love you truly
I’ll love you till the day I die
Please don’t say those words, you wanna make me cry?
Let’s just go:
(whistle solo)

We've gotta go
Splish splash, hold her down, don’t let go
And even if you see a lovely toucan
You gotta press harder, you gotta press harder
We’re getting rid of the man

Let’s just go
Splish splash, hold him down, don’t let go
And if Mr. Alligator stops by
Just tell him we’re doing what he should’ve been doing
We’re working for the big blue sky
Yes we're working for the big blue

Oh yes there’s just nature all around me
Wiping off the tracks we leave behind
Still some blood there, on your dark hair
Oh, but what we gonna eat tonight?
Is everything gonna be alright?
Wasting all our wishes on the little fishes
This way we’re never gonna have to do the dishes
Tell me do you eat the brain?
And do you like the rain?
It’s dripping down your face
Not on a window pane
And are you happy now
You look so happy now

Finally alone dear, no one phones here
Not a single human being in sight
But if someone ever finds me
Oh please leave me like you found me
‘Cause there’s nature all around me

All heavens break
They’re falling cakes
Right above mid-July
Spongeing the tide

As the zeuglodons fly
Your sheets, you’re shy
You just breathe in the leaves
Look so pleased that they could stop by and

Feast on the flesh of the beast, from inside
Tasting it die
Tasting it die and as you

Blast all the shells in the hell of your head
I’ll make the bed
That’s what she said
Just as we...

All I can see
Is you and me
Shouting wild symmetry
Waltzes the trees
Far from these candles and clocks
My hands that don’t walk
They just hold things
Whole things
And as you feast on the flesh
of the beast from inside
I'll make it die
Right after I make it cry

We've gotta go
Splish splash, hold her down, don’t let go
And even if you see a lovely toucan
You gotta press harder, you gotta press harder
We’re getting rid of the man

Let’s just go
Splish splash, hold him down, don’t let go
And if Mr. Alligator stops by
Just tell him we’re doing what he should’ve been doing
We’re working for the big blue sky
(Come on everybody)
Working for the big blue
(Hallelujah!)
Yes we're working
I said we're working for the big blue sky
