lyrics

I was a parasitic boy,
my mama said, "Put down that toy,
This shelter will not last the night,
You must set out and seek the light,

"My son, your fortune's far away,
you cannot stay another day,
it's called The Great Maturity,
you must be strong, take it from me,"

Mama mama take me back
Deep inside your amniotic sac
don't want to run, I just want to hide
reabsorb me in the womb inside you

I was wrong, I was young and green o
I let you send me for a capuccino
should have stayed where it's safe and hot
now I know you are all that I got

I cannot find my way on earth
I can't find love or joy or mirth
the lights are on but I am blind
I have no soul, no peace of mind

I was not ready to explore
Did mama think I was a whore?
When lady sent me off to sea
I was not ready to be free

Mama mama sent me away
Down to the shore where the seababies play
I was lost so I went for a ride
Should have left my 'bilicus inside you

Mama mama my frontal lobe
cannot make it on this giant globe
I am so weak like a capon wing
Can only whisper but I cannot sing

oh MA ------- MA!!!!!!!!
