well if I ever see the morning
just like a lizard in the spring
i'm gonna run out in the meadow
to catch the silence where it sings

i'm gonnna force the Serengeti
to disappear into my eyes
then when i hear voices calling
i'm gonna turn just inside out

well if i ever get to slumber
just like a mole deep in the ground
hell i wont be found

deep in the dust I'll go and gather
i grow i diamond in my chest
i make reflections as the moonshine
turn to a villain as i rest

well if i ever get to slumber
just like a mole deep in the ground
hell i won't be found

i know there is a hollow
i need to fill it with a draft of all the words that i won't say
and with a quiet whisper
i send a curse upon the day that never sent the sun to see the lie

i'm gonna float up in the ceiling
i built a levee of the stars
and in my field of tired horses
i built a freeway through this forest

well if i ever get that slumber
i'll be that mole deep in the ground
and i won't be found
