    "Petrified Forest" Lyrics

    Captain Beefheart

    Human Bark
    Beautyless hide from beauty
    Bow your eyes 'n heads to the duty of the dead's
    Suck the ground
    Breathe life into the dead dinosaurs
    Let the past demons rear up 'n belch fire in the air of now
    The rug's wearing out that we walk on
    Sonn it will fray 'n we'll drop
    Dead into yesterday
    Must the breathing pay for those who breathe in 'n don't
    Breathe out
    There'd be no gain, brothers, if no one would play

    'n for your games count me n' all that can see,
    Breathe in 'n out hungry today 'n eat hearty tomorrow
    Or eat away 'n be eaten some day
    No seed shall sow in salt water
    If the dinosaur cries with blood in his eyes
    In the dinosaur cries with blood in his eyes
    'n eats our babies for our lies
    Belches fire in our skies
    Maybe I'll die but he'll be rumbling through
    Your petrified forest
