The Monkey And The Bees (Pt. 2)


#teeth #flowers #train

Give me all the bees, all the bees in this world
Give me the flowers for them to live upon
Breathe the night into my side
Break a tooth from my jaw and keep it for good luck
Or you might even make a necklace out of all my teeth
So that I can finally bite into your breast

I saw the night, I dug for more, but then I closed the cabin door
A deserted cabin on a train, it cries for a companion
I talk to the fog outside, that dissolves when I come too close
Are you not just like that fog, rising from the ground in tiny drops
Your sister is the dew, your brother is the rain

I spoke to your sister once and wet she kissed me on the lips
Your brother chased me down a road, all far away from home

Your brother turned into a hailstorm then, the flowers are all gone
In consequence the bees have all flown away,
I can still hear the humming as they went
Here on the ground in the morning, your sister comforts me
But in the end she is but just a drop of water on this glowing stone

Give me all the flowers for the bees to return
Your sister evaporates right now, from the fire that is me
And with a sound from hell of burning flesh, she turns into a new fog

La la la lei la lei, la la la lei la lei
La la la lei la lei, lei, lei, la lei
