THE FLAT EARTH

The earth can be any shape you want it
Any shape at all
Dark and cold or bright and warm
Long or thin or small
But it's home
And all I ever had
And maybe why for me
The earth is flat

Friends have often asked me why
I'm sensitive about my height
I would look around and say
Hmmm, I thought I was immune
All my life I have waited
To be given any word
It was screaming to be heard
Please remember...

The earth can be any shape you want it
Any shape at all
Dark and cold or bright and warm
Long or thin or small
But it's home
And all I ever had
And maybe why for me
The earth is flat

Turn the island to the storm tonight
Then when they spill the demon seed
Turn and face into the wind
All along you still believed
Believed you were immune
And if love is all you're missing
Look into your heart
Is anybody home?
Please remember...

The earth can be any shape you want it
Any in the world
But don't you point that raygun at me
I might just explode
There are stones
Buried in your soul
And only a fool would blame the death of rock & roll
And in time
You'll come to understand
This flat old earth is in your gentle hands
