Lyrics

no blind spots in the leopard's eyes
could ever hope to jeopardize
the lives of lambs
the shepherd cries

an afterlife for a silverfish
eternal dust, less ticklish
than a clean room
a houseguest's wish

(chorus)
he lies on his side
is he trying to hide
in fact it's the earth
which he's known since birth

face worker, a serpentine miner
a roof falls, an underliner
of leaf structure
the egg timer

Guitar

intro: E
