Lyrics

I believe we’re all made the same
oxygen, hydrogen and carbon
we come from a place that don't have a name
or answer scribbled in the margin
we all go back to the love of the dirt
I hope we all get to be grateful
for the time we absorbed the sun & the wind
and the family and friends at the table
I was prepared for monkey to die
I wasn't prepared for my girlfriend
didn’t know how to grieve
didn’t know how to cry
when she was taken away by the Covid
I never wanted to absorb the tradition that you knew
You only wanted me to cry when I knew it wasn’t true
you left a finger on the button of the bomb inside of you
and when it detonated, fulminated what else could I do
kill the lights and close the door
bye-bye mama I’m going to war
I’m giving up my ego
and when I sign on with the Marine Corps
I’ll fly across the ocean like a seagull
and It ain’t always sad when a loved one dies
cause I know they’re released from their burden
it’s just hurts to hear those little ones cry
yes it’s hard to hear them hurtin
I was prepared for monkey to die
I wasn't prepared for my girlfriend
didn’t know how to grieve
didn’t know how to cry
when she was taken away by the Covid
