Neil Innes - Them Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • They came in countless numbers
  • Without hope, without hopelessness
  • On jelly limbs
  • Faceless
  • Crawling out of the living sea.
  • The green world welcomed them
  • It sweetened the air for them
  • And above all, the sun warmed them
  • And dried them
  • By night, in dreamless sleep
  • The new life filled them
  • Piping strange harmonies in the blood
  • Fusing the beginnings of bones
  • Then hunger awoke them
  • And sleepy with a sense of being
  • They arose and moved inland
  • Fulfilling their new-found needs
  • They called out to one another
  • The winds carried their cries
  • Over mountains, through forests,
  • Across deserts and oceans
  • Great distances were traveled
  • The strong devoured the weak
  • The quick devoured the slow
  • The cunning devoured the foolish
  • They fed on each other without malice
  • or remorse
  • Their purpose was survival
  • Life was their achievement
  • They formed into groups
  • Some took to the air
  • Some burrowed underground
  • And some returned to the water
  • From icecap to icecap
  • The globe rang with their cleverness
  • And with each turn
  • Gave them meaning
