about

This song begs the question: why would people chase foxes if they didn't own any chickens?

lyrics

I guess everyone owned chickens,
Back before we knew about science
Just like street rats carried rapiers when attainment was as
Simple as a little ultraviolence
We all like wearing hats and going fast,
But we do need some direction for ourselves
Begging for connection in our dance with nature's knowledge of its silence

If vermin are still creatures,
Then why don't we eat them at meals?
Cause look at all the bloody chickens, but by Satan I'm
The dickens in a nutshell, and this is hell
If stealing forth a life, and living ours in constant running isn't living
Then at any rate I'm kneeling, but the dogs will drag me to the wishing well

God I fucking love chickadees
Please I'm hungry and they look so sweet
It's hard to sleep, when you see everything

I know I'm such a prize
And you'll catch me by my bright eyes
Surely then you'll be just fine, and expose your find
But in the alleyways of mindfulness a lie
Will attach itself to my hide, I'm not such a fox
To think I cannot die
So in turn I'll see you grinning
Though I robbed your fucking chickens of their lives
