lyrics

As the roots crackle out their beat underneath the haloed moon
The ants stroke the aphids to get their honeydew

The stag beetle bursts in
A glimmer on this brow
He invites you to lie on his bed of moss

And the budding of the saplings sends desire through the air
And the earthworms keep things happening
Wearing lichen for their hair

And the moths they are such pretty dancers
Underneath the starry skies
And the ferns they never take their chances
In the light of fireflies

There’s a party in the drunken forest
Don’t invite the sun and it will never end

Pendulous branches crack like whips
Fueled by their daily orgy of solar indulgence
With some gentle coaxing, tight flower bulbs will open

And the trees stagger round in their lopsided crowns
With their feet in the ground, and the flickers all pound out the rhythm, mesmerizing
And the sap is running high
And the fungus, tantalizing
Oh the foxfire glows bright

The mushrooms give a pleasant disconnect
The leaves hold patterns from a dream
Some may fall and then they disappear
But in decay there grows a seed

There’s a party in the drunken forest
Don’t invite the sun and it will never end
