Lightnin' Proof

lyrics

Gotta get me out
Gonna sing and shout
Something's calling me
Out into the trees
Some million mice
Scared of snow and ice
Ask the doug fir tree
Won't you shelter me?
See their tails sticking out from the cones
Like faces in apartment windows
Lit up in the light of the TV
That tells you the world has gone crazy.
There's 500 cars stuck in Chicago
You can't move them they are buried in snow.
Tens of thousands of people in Cairo,
you can't move them their not gonna go home.

Little mouse I'm just like you I wanna hide in the trees where the storm can't get to, cuz I ain't lightnin' or bullet proof, I need something strong and beautiful to turn to.

Gotta get me out
Gonna sing and shout
Gonna run and yell
Gonna see and smell
All that mountain land
Gonna clap my hands
To each little mouse
I'll say "come out, come out."

Millions of fish washed up in LA
Why? Nobody knows how to explain.
9.0 quake in the Pacific.
End times, they get less and less cryptic.

Little mouse I'm just like you I wanna hide in the trees where the storm can't get to, cuz I ain't lightnin' or bullet proof, I need something strong and beautiful to turn to.
