The Very Old Man

This song is by Hum and appears on the album You'd Prefer an Astronaut (1995).

It's eerie and it's awesome
How connected two pods scattered on the surface can become
Lazy into one

He knows lightning kills the other
She can't stand to watch his petals fall
It's better when cascades become like us all

After noon a golden disengagement leaves a woman
With a household left to fill
Sit and be still

Send the voltage cross his ticker
Watch the stars they start to flicker
And one by one the levels fall

Another drink, my love, and make it tall enough
So I can stand on it and see
All you've done for me

A world of curves and lines electric
Remember how you strung the colored lights
From Christmas tree to me
