from LET IT SHOW by Coyote Kolb



In 1822
there lived a man
that nobody knew
He spent his time
down in the mine
Diamonds he might never find
Nor any precious stone

He didn't want to do
what he was told
He didn't want to quit
three feet from gold
So he spent the days
In a craze
Chasing carrots in a maze
Until the floor fell through

In 1835
He spoke to his imaginary wife
He said 'I wish I never worked so hard
Honey why'd I dig so far..
And what have I to show'..

It goes around and 'round
Just like the Ouroboros
Hear the word
In every sound

By the time
he'd finally paid his dues
The old man was walking
without shoes
Though he never lost his head
Even when he was left for dead
He said 'Now I know the truth'

It goes around and round
Just like the Ouroboros
Hear the word
In every sound
