Track Name: The Fall of Snipe
The children said he didn’t exist
They laughed about it all day
They crossed his name off the list
Then they went off to play

He digs around in the mud [with his bill]
Exposing grubs to the sun
The doctor fixes, the soldier kills
The plumber knows when he’s done

Till the end
Till the end

He built a sword to wave around
To make the world notice him
He laughed and danced like a tragic clown
And slapped a policeman on the chin

He ran but his shadow followed him
To the end of this puny earth
He dug a grave but couldn’t fit in
So sat and cried for all he was worth

Till the end
Till the end
The seamstress sews up
All done again

He made a totem out of shit
The children burned it to the ground
He tried reconstructing it
But every time it fell back down

He looked around for a way out
But could not find a door
He sank down into the mud
And disappeared for evermore

Till the end
Till the end
The seamstress sews up
All done again

The doctor fixes, the gunman kills
The plumber knows when he is done
