Nine Cats

This song is by Porcupine Tree and appears…

Watch video at YouTube
The butterfly sailed on the breeze
Past a field of barbed wire trees
Where golden dragons chased around
Pampered poppies on the ground

Two silver trout sat way on high
And watched a royal samurai
Plant two black orchids in a box
And strap it to a laughing fox

A minstrel bought a crooked spoon
He gave it to a blue baboon
Who filled it full of virgin snow
And wandered in the afterglow

A toad stood in his ballet shoes
Teaching sixteen kangaroos
How to skip across a lake
They found it hard to stay awake

A pharaoh played a merry tune
And watched nine cats dance on the moon
I didn't know what all this meant
I didn't know why I'd been sent
