Fred Small – Jaguar lyrics

In the emerald cathedral
In the valley of clouds
In the span of the branches
Two eyes keep the watch
Where the hummingbird dances
And the snake hesitates
With the calm of command
The jaguar waits

The chain saw is whining the bulldozer roars
Monkeys are screeching in flight
The spires of the Arawak cut down at one blow
Where will the jaguar go
Where will the jaguar go

Under the hammer of hunger
On the anvil of fear
The poor of Sao Paolo
Stream to the frontier
With the promise of farmland
Honest work honest pay
Till the rains unrelenting
Sweep the topsoil away

The captains of cattle take the land cheap
New York and Osaka crave beef
Hooves crush the dirt into dust below
Where will the jaguar go
Where will the jaguar go

When the circle is broken
When the crystal is cracked
When the thread of creation is torn
We slip through the veil into terrors unknown
Where will the jaguar go

In the canyons of commerce
In convoys of light
The armies of loneliness
Drive into the night
Trading plastic for plastic
Making fashion of trash
We are dreaming of love
As love turns to ash
The fires of Prometheus flare to the sky
The seas of the prophets boil dry
This gutted globe was a garden I'm told
Where will the jaguar go
Where will the jaguar go
Where will the jaguar go
