lyrics

Plain of Jars

Into the dark trees to the left,
fly paper emerges from enormous termite nests
but with eyes of honey and the list
and that green pack of cigarettes…

Please just forget us.
Please just forget us.

Fly papers from red and yellow stick
emerge from enormous termite nests,
emerging from the early morning stench.

Please just forget us.
Please just forget us.

Into the dark trees to the left,
fly paper emerges from enormous termite nests
but with eyes of honey and the list
and that green pack of cigarettes,
emerging from the early morning stench…

Please just forget us.
Please just forget us.
