(sounds like dirt vii)


do i hear
21 21 21

i'll give you
21 21 21

this night you
are mistaken

i'm a farmer
in the city

dark farm
houses
against the
sky

every night
i must wonder why

harness on the
left nail keeps
wrinkling wrinkling

then higher above
me - e e so o
e e e so o o

can't go by
a man from
rio

go by
a man from
vigo

can't go by
a man from
ostia

hey ninetto

remember that
dream

we talked about
it
so many times

do i hear
21 21 21

i'll give you
21 21 21

and if i'm not
mistaken
we can search
from farm to
farm

dark farm houses
against our eyes

every night i
must realize

harness on the
left nail

keeps withering
and withering

then higher above
me - e e so o
e e e so o o

can't go by
a man in
this shirt

go by
a man in
that shirt

can't go by
a man with brain
grass

go by his long
long eye
gas

and i used
to be a
citizen

and i never felt
the pressure

i knew nothing
of the horses

nothing of the
thresher

take me with
you

it was the
journey of
a life
