The Thermals – Top Of The Earth lyrics

Picture yourself
Top of the earth
A foot in cement
A flag in the dirt
Picture the world
Forgetting to turn
We smack the sun
You're the first
To burn

Picture the galaxy
Blood, sand and soil
And cheap motor oil

Our union
Our movement
Our greatest high
The shit we die for

Picture the shooting sky
As we fall in the snow
Picture the fire and wind
As we crawl to the ocean

Picture yourself
Top of the earth
A head in the clouds
A hand in rebirth
I picture your face
I picture you naked
I picture it soon
We melt to the moon
