It was dark dark dark, down the well well well,

At the bottom I pitched, where I scratched and i fell,

Doctors made me itch, mistress put me here,

Cut and drug and stitch, make it disappear,

Make me dance dance dancing shadows on the wall,

These are all my friends running while I crawl

down into the depths , swimming with some sharks,

at the bottom of the well it was dark dark dark.

Why can't we sail upon grandpa's wooden ship,

Fight a war, lose our money climbing in our space ships,

But we won't go no where, we'll just stare at these walls till it all blurs together seeing spring in the fall,

Seeing flies in our dinner, seeing wings on the flies,

Keeping wings in our eyes, seeing pretty things that fly,

Seeing tables and patients leasing time up in hell,

Building Noah's ark down the well well well.


from Dr. Bendo and the Agents of Alchemy, track released March 18, 2011
