​We Live in a Cave

This song is by Cretin and appears on the album Stranger (2014).

Have you lost your way now that the daylight's snuffed, beyond one field too many, past plots best left uncrossed? Is that our light you see blinking from the bend, the lure of camp spit smoking--have you found our cave? We came all this way and left all we were, to find ourselves new. Reborn, we are new! We live in a cave. (In her dark we are new.)

Do you spy our shadows dancing on the rocks? Nude, we leap the flames and chant the wordless songs. You later find the tunnel where we snore in piles like animals; you tiptoe but fail to see me smile. You came all this way. Forget who you were. Find yourself new. Reborn, you are new! We live in a cave. (In her dark we are new.)

Surprise! You hear the cackling--my wives have blocked the path. Still, you fight the groping tide of hands that pull you back. Can you see the cave mouth? Or have you shut your eyes? It's dawning pink out there, that birdsong bids farewell. We live in a cave. (In her dark we are new.) You live in a cave.
