Lyrics

A Telegram from Aliens
by David Husted

Intro:

Verse1:
Scent of spice on the trade winds
Sound of sea and the wind howling….

…..Listing starboard toward Orion

Ozone and roots in the fabric
of field and stream the last Rhinos dream….
And then fade away
…………………Fade Away
Ch:

…..You know we are better than this
…..You know we are bigger than this

{instr}

Shake off my mind's snakes and cobwebs
We're moths pining towards burning flames
Imagine a Telegram
…..from Aliens…… …….that says

Ch:
…..You know you are better than this
…..You know you are bigger than this

{instr}

Bridge:
Humans think they're so fantastic
I think they might Plastic
bet they taste like burnt toast
and salted concrete

They're enigmatic
Clattering fanatics
They lie , they cheat, they steal, they kill
Take Earth for granted

They huff and puff,
never shut-up
Galactic Council says
Prob best to zap them
……………………………
But every now and then I see compassion
Every now and then I see such kindness

The most extraordinary ship of fools
They make it so difficult for us to choose
Throw them in a tasty stew with garlic, pepper, salt and truth
Others say, let them stay

hope maybe they'll find a better way; I pray

To Love……………To Love, To Love , To Love, To Love

Verse 2:
Her family, past the Pleiades
She's traveling on a cosmic plain
She sleeps beneath
The lathe of heaven

Today a passenger on a sleeping train
Sipping whiskey with a fine Green Sage
Who brewed Ayahuasca with a
Poetic Naturalist; He said

Ch
……. know we're better than this
She smiled, waved goodbye, I'll try, "you're better than this"
……. know we're better than this
She smiled, waved goodbye, I'll try, "you're better than this
