lyrics

The nest up above he built
You know the sun’s held up by stilts
He engineered his ever enduring fears

The emptiness he felt, landlocked career he dealt
The animal domain, the tail they brought him changed the pain
And sight he gained

The course of mammals past, those stormy clouds he longed to grow a mast
His mate a crippled bear, his genes to soar she did not share
And jumped impaired

The nest up above he built
You know the sun’s held up by stilts
He engineered his ever enduring fears

The house they could not see, those stilts they rose the height of trees
His esoteric peace, was so high up they did ignore
Until it poured

Soon the tower grew too high, wobbled and swayed over city so far
The storm grew into lightning strikes, struck those stilts and did set fire

The nest up above he built
You know the sun’s held up by stilts
He engineered his ever enduring fears
