The Jazz Butcher - Land lyrics

plants as high as trees
all around your knees
you're gigantic
and wonderful

crane your neck to see
a world as it should be
and it's all yours
grazing

and at night no light
no light upon the earth
at night the only light
comes from the stars

outside of geography
outside any century
we can name
your world

and at night no light
no light upon the earth
at night the only light
comes from the stars

stars uncountable
so beautiful
so beautiful
so beautiful
we'll never know

(ace squiggly synth noises)

Look! There's some pterodactyls!
They're brilliant, covered in snow-white fur.
Don't let them see you though or they'll scoop you up
and carry you off to a gory fate.
( This is probably my favourite verse of lyrics in the j.b. canon. Almost poetic. And the only give-away is a TINY MARKING on its rear. )

and up there in the sky! Orion!
one day Osiris will come and show a world
of two-legged apes what they can do.
but they could never belong here.

and they're going to make a thousand points of light upon the earth
but you know the only light comes from the stars
stars uncountable
so beautiful
we'll never know...

A world without people
in the land before time. (repeat)
