lyrics

“leave behind the world you know,”
said the fox to the crow
“ride the red fur atop my back;
i promise you will not be attacked.”

“leave behind the world you know,”
said the gangster to his bro
“you can trade impoverished shame
for fifteen minutes of glorious fame.”

if it’s all the same to you
i’ll watch while you cut the deck
i’m not saying
that I don’t trust you;
you’d do it too if it was your neck

“leave behind the people you’ve been”
said the president to all his men
“i have relieved you of your sin;
you walk away, my solemn pardon.”

“leave behind the cyan blue sky,”
said the spider to the fly;
“climb the web into my breast;
i’ll take care of all the rest.”
