Get Low

 

 

While walking through town he is accosted by a woman conscripting soldiers for a journey to the center of the planet

 

 

 

YouÕre impeccably informed

if you know what I must do

But I canÕt stop the whole worldÕs wars

just to tell you I love you

So if this is not okayÉ

 

She was extraordinarily confrontational

for a girl raised in caves

Waving her flags and flyers in peopleÕs faces

I was enthralled by charms

Drawn in by lithefull arms

Somehow I found myself enlisted

on a journey

to the center of the earth

 

She says you have to get as low as you can get

before you reach paradise, babe

She says you have to get as low as you can get

before you reach paradise, babe

 

Well if I was acting dense

What she said it made no sense

But it spoke to my every desire

IÕm just looking for a place where I could know myself

Through fruited action

And fire

 

She says you have to get as low as you can get

before you reach paradise, babe

She says you have to get as low as you can get

before you reach paradise, babe

And if I meant to say IÕm sorry

then IÕm sorry that I did

ÔCause I canÕt say the things I need to

without sounding like a dick

So now IÕm setting off to save the human race
