lyrics

At first I was a dragon as huge and bad as you can imagine
Breathin fire from the sky, my very existence proof of magic
A sneaky hunter invaded my cave while I was napping
Truly a savage, opened the armor guarding my heart, ran it through with a javelin

Began my journey on earth perched on a branch in the forest
Tweeting my song til I turned to bones and those
Became four paws on the ground, whiskers coalesced to a trunk
I trumpeted and I stomped my own path through the grass until my last

The hungry clumsy giant, inspired stories of Samson
Eatin honey outta carcasses fighting with a jawbone in my hand and
Then I was shaved and blinded, shackled in irons, enslaved and branded
Then I tripped and fell through their temple beams and on their heads it landed

Wife of an Iceni king, the Romans they took everything
When he died they raped our three daughters right in front of my eyes
But only after they beat me, left me bleeding
So I took my only recourse, and led the troops in revolt

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now

My music tamed the wildest beasts,
But I didn't do it for the fame, my wife was deceased
So I defied the gods and fought through Hades put that hell hound to sleep, brought her back with me
But when I turned around she was an apparition - simple deific trickery!

Mama cursed me, babies died, I'm certain If I sacrifice three other guys,
My favorite son's life will be spared; fortune teller, I shared visions of
Hope with sinful folk to gullible to know,
I'ma cook their fat into soap, and tea cakes is where the blood goes yeah

I'm Nat Turner - chains break; the slave's loose. We've paid dues
Hack the plantation owner's face through like a grapefruit that sprays juice
And hence forth, let's get more pitchforks
Lit torches and show em what we pissed for!

Writer, an author; I will Thoreau-ly Pond-er Walden
'n' all of nature beyond and document my responses.
Grandeur Expansive, I'm plantin' seeds and I watch 'em grow
ebb n flow; connected to the rhythm; civilly disobedient is how I'm livin

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now

Flying high as you can see - the mighty reptilian
But he's strong lazy and stingy and his pride ended up killin him

Primal instinct, all the knowledge I need I got in me
Access to a higher wisdom, networked to infinity

Passion fulfills, but unchecked lust savagely kills
When I won't listen to enough wisdom to outbalance my will

If I can't live free I'd rather die, right now
I will never cower to powers over me, I'll lead the mutiny!

Hear the echoes of my love when I make the music of the spheres
Defying judgment from above, cause it ain't no jury of my peers

Use my ax to chop them up, boiled fat, I drained blood
Cleaned it up all neat - and that soprano was so sweet!

My revolt will resurrect quickly and manifest differently
Next time I'm taking way more than 60 slave owners with me!

Expeditions to nearby regions; I witness legions of heathens
Passin' season of evenin's doin' hardly more than breathin'!

It's time for you to awaken, sliding through time and space as we fly through imagination
It's the method of operation of life and death's yin and yang and they call it reincarnation
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning
And the cycle - keeps turning, keeps turning now
