Get on the plough
The captain's crowd
Will meet you there
If you're not terrified
If this is real

High on the mountain
Far from town
They'll hear your call
This coming fall
If this is real

For we don't belong here
Been a long year
How about ten more?

And if a cold wind
Blows in again

Out in the night
A parasite
Invents a crown
And takes a bow
His isn't real

His is the far cry
The outlier
The sham

I drank his wine
It tasted just like water tastes like mine
He's a metronome with garden statue pride
He's long on polyester, short on time

We don't belong here
It's a long year
Hey what's the score?

Bilbo Baggins!
Shaggy, Velma, Daphne!
A-solvin' mysteries!

So get on the plough
The captain's bow
Still sails your way
If you're awake, or no
