Lyrics

Everybody misses you but
Nobody shoots
You're the kind of animal that
Moves around on roots

Child of the universe
You do not understand what gets you round

Everybody dances but they
Don't leave no shape
You're descended from someone but it
Sure ain't the ape

Child of the universe
You cannot feel and think at the same time

Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you

Turn me on
Turn me on

I saw you yesterday by
The abandoned rail
You're the kind of animal that
Swallows its own tail

Child of the universe
Your universe is getting very hot

Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you

Deep inside the womb of life
Silent raindrops fall
Deep inside the womb of life
Tears begin to fall
Deep inside the womb of life
I cannot hear at all

Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
Dot-to-dot you
Dop you, like you
