lyrics

When Will You Die?

I'm a beetle in a tall, tall tree
Plum-iridescent as the oily sea
Climbing higher up into the sky
Composing sonnets for my friend the fly

I pause on branches to admire the view
Survey the houses of the chosen few
They crowd the valley, crooked, brown and wrong
These dragging husks will never make you strong

When will you die?

You know beetle's wings are made of gold
Ebon-black along their pulsing folds
Moist and pink, your skin is much too soft
The winds would freeze you if you went aloft

When will you die?
