Bardo Pond

Walking Stick Man

Play

Standing still
Still like a tree
Teeth like skin
Rest within
Still like a tree
Rest within

You've nothing but a baby
Dressed in skin
Nothing but a baby
Wrapped in skin

I see you coming
Down
I see you
With your eyes cast down
You're a walking stick man
I can see you're so tough
I can see you're bleeding anyway

I see you coming
Going coming running now
You're going right up there
Right up to the top man
You can't move
'Cause you're fixed to the spot
When you get up there
You can't come down here no more

Feet are on the spot
Reach out your arms
Put your hands in the air
You're on the spot
Wrapped up inside

Oh baby, baby
Wrapped in skin
Teeth like skin

When you get up there man
Sun is gonna smack you
In the face
'Cause it's blinding
When there's nothing in the way

Teeth like skin
Wrapped within
Teeth like skin
Rest within
Still like a tree
Eyes on the ground
Reach out your arms
You're on the spot

Teeth like skin
Rest within
You're so tough
Dressed in skin
Within
The sap is running
