lyrics

3 and 4 and 5
counts the magpie
counts her children in the sky
3 and 4 and 5

one jewel excites her way
plate reverb and tap delay
those higher frequencies decay
counts the magpie

woods and lakes and fields and sand
summer heats this joyous land
i asked the trees to speak to me
they are awake and listening

1 and 2 and 3
the laughing gull awakens me
a rusty hinge at the stroke of 3
1 and 2 and 3

the goddess of the laughing gulls
lives in a red house on the hill
through stained glass and spectacles
she's watching me

woods and lakes and fields and sand
summer heats this joyous land
i asked the trees to speak to me
they are awake and listening
