lyrics

he orchard where rats scurried, and buried pungy sticks, the milky white farmers, rock salt and finger drips,
returns to dust on the bones of the valley that will explode with silicon chips.
and then was a sound, carried on the airwaves,
electric am bound.
from the land of our language, a fiery stone to cauterize the bloody wounds in our ears, hearts and our eyes.
and how big is the universe? ( it's giganic) i guess it's big enough. ( it's giganic)
god big as love.
god big as love.
and how much is the universe? (it's giganic) sometimes it's just too much. (it's giganic) god big as love.
god big as love.
one berry by crow, across horizon fly.
a panoramic point of view that grew into a landslide.
the energy infused and rebound, echoed deep.
the milky white farmer's wife, gnawed cancers bones forever sleep.
and how big is the universe? (it's giganic) i guess it's big enough. (it's giganic)
god big as love.
god big as love.
and how much is the universe? (it's giganic) sometimes it's just too much. (it's giganic) god big as love.
god big as love.
and how much is the universe? (it's giganic) sometimes it's all too much. (it's giganic) god big as love.
god big as love.
the orchard where rats scurried, impaled on pungy sticks, the milky white farmer, rock salt and finger drips,
return to dust on the bones of the valley that will explode with silicon chips.
a fiery stone to immortalize.
