about

a brief history of Homo sapiens, colonization, pillage, plunder and rape, ecocide, that sort of thing

lyrics

Give me will and give me wine
Give me the road to hell and time forgotten
Give me silver cotton

Give me meat and give me fire
Give me the world and all my heart desires
Give me silver cotton


And you ask me to be tender to this spaceship in the sky
But I don't know what it is, I never seen it with my own eyes
Just my silver cotton

Give me smoke and the tick of time

Give me a revolution and all will happen

All that silver cotton

Give me love and take my seed
The universe is all I ever wanted
All that silver cotton

Cuz you ask me to be tender to the spaceship in the sky
But I don't know what it is, I never seen it with my own eyes
Just my silver cotton

Gimme knowledge, gimme me brain
Gimme the power to supercede horizons
I’ll meet you there at sundown
Ain’t no other option

Gimme gold and gimme coin
Give me your gods, I will take their place in heaven
That’s just where I’m headed
To all that silver cotton

And you ask me to be tender to this spaceship in the sky
But I don't know what it is, I never seen it with my own eyes
Just that silver cotton

Cuz you ask me to be tender to the spaceship in the sky
But I don't know what it is, I never seen it with my own eyes

Just that silver cotton
Just that silver cotton
Just that silver cotton
Just that silver cotton
Just that silver cotton
