These bone dry bones will crumble if you try to pick them up,
In a sheep's skull an insect with a headache tries to eat what the crows left,
And you will panic at the time,
But it will seem familiar soon,
Rain rivers flow through your kitchen cupboards,
Stray dogs on the roofs of cars like sirens,
And it will be frightening at the time,
But it will be familiar soon.

Beg for your life if you think your knees can take the strain,
Wave your white flag in the air if you want to,
And it will seem pathetic at the time,
But it will be familiar soon.
