View from Mars

Oh last child in the woods the 21st century stole your goods
There was birds & trees & leaves & sticks, but they’ve all disappeared lickety split,
Because of silly rules & permutations & recalculations of an un-planned, over-manned nation, of me.

Way back in thousand zero-zero, well a kid might have told you so – ‘I’m just happy diggin a hole’
Ask them now, they wouldn’t know, how to do it.
& “when I see birches bend left to right, I like to think some boys been swingin them”
Oh Robert Frost that’s nice, but a very optimistic candle you’re holdin, hold on tight

I’m not protesting machine… I’m simply floating here in this hammock, lookin back a 3019
& there’s a whole lotta good in the woods, for a little kid who’s raised in the shoebox neighbourhoods.
Wow, you touch & you feel
Wow, you meet the wonderful the magical unreal
Wow, your imagination – get up, get down, get all over this nation

Nature deficit disorder, was probably something to get in order, so they didn’t steal your sole & start charging pram tolls on the Botanical Highway. I’ve been floating here in this hammock thinking about all the things I could of done & all the things I could have said, & it comes back to ‘Nature deficit disorder, was probably something to get in order’ but they’ve sold your sole & they’re chargin you pram tolls on the Botanical Highway

Wow, you touch & you feel
Wow, you meet the wonderful the magical unreal
Wow, your imagination – get up, get down, but I’ll be floatin in this hammock all day…
