lyrics

We came down from the trees
and we moved under the sea
sea monkey see monkey do.
With the serpent on his arm
and the apple with its charm
sea monkey, sea monkey dew

Oh, let’s go within
let’s contemplate our origins
Oh, let’s go without
who knows what we could find up in the clouds

There is a place inside us all
where sin is still original
a place where we ReVerse the fall
(it means we verse it differently)
We place the apple on the tree
like backwards played pornography
where coming is going
and knaming is knowing
a tale retold eternally
we rewrite our own history.

We came down from the trees
and we moved under the sea
sea monkey see monkey do.
With the serpent on his arm
and the apple with its charm
sea monkey see monkey do

Oh, oh what a day
I hope another comes along,
oh, let us pray.
Oh, oh what a night
I’ve never known one quite like this,
oh no, not quite.
Oh, oh what a day
I hope another comes along
without delay.
Oh, oh what a year
let’s close the book on this one now as another one draws near
Oh, oh what a song
Let’s write another one just like this
But not as long

sea monkey see monkey do
sea monkey sea monkey dew
(Monkey dew!)
sea monkey see monkey do
(Monkey dew!)
sea monkey sea monkey dew

And at the end of a long evolutionary day the monkey lays down in the field and stares up at the moon through the trees; the earth’s enlightened child, magnetizing the monkey with its lunar lullabies, urging it to follow its example—to leave the earth, it says:

“Rise, enlightened child
I left the cradle long ago,”
raining down its golden smiles.
“On and on, off we go!”

Monkey, shed your skin
as without, so within
moving on into space
the finish line, the human race.

On and on, to the stars
on and on, it’s cold up there
So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?

So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?
So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?
So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?

Full moon, stuck up in a tree
out on a limb, eternally
tree of life, geometree
set yourself from matter free

So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?
So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?
So far out, will we find
the body will be kept in mind?


So far out,
the body will be kept in mind
So far out,
the body will be kept in mind

The body will be kept in mind
