You’ve gotta cultivate it
The soil is soft and faded
I was a worm but now I’m gone

And then it rained again
Track marks muddied the ground began
To firm up the life that you fed on

A selfish love I got used to
Gonna trick me out of my boots
But I will try to lean forward
Gonna need the best parachute

Sometimes you gotta feed it
The ground needs water weed it
I was the sun but now I’m gone

The garden then will die
Plants they wither and go dry
Losing the light that they fed on

A selfish love I got used to
Gonna trick me out of my shoes
You will hear this I will make you
String it all together parachute
