Minerva
Knuckle Down 2005

You wandered in 
to the forest 
followin 
that shiny red ball 
and by the time 
you looked up 
you were lost 
but that's not all 
instead of being 
my hero boy 
who finds his way 
and emerges a man 
you just start cuttin 
me down 
tree by tree 
fast as you can 

oh say can you see me 
oh say can you see me 
oh say can you see me over here ? 

you want me 
to tell you a story 
but i am weary 
of entertaining 
i'll have more 
to say when i'm happy 
course then i'll have less 
to sing 

there's no me 
left for me 
no anecdotal time of day 
no wild adventures 
except in darkness 
so dark i'd rather not say 

oh say can you see me 
oh say can you see me 
oh say can you see me over here ?
