Jefferson Airplane Eskimo Blue Day Lyrics

Last updated: 10/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

Snow cuts loose from the frozen
Until it joins with the African sea
In moving it changes its cold and its name
The reason I come and go is the same

Animal game for me
You call it rain
But the human name
Doesn't mean shit to a tree

If you don't mind heat in your river and
Fork tongue talking from me
Swim like an eel fantastic seal
Take my love when it's free

Electric feel with me
You call it loud
But the human crowd
Doesn't mean shit to a tree

Change the strings and notes slide
Change the bridge and string shift down
Shift the notes and bridge sings

Fire eating people
Rising toys of the sun
Energy dies without body warm
Icicles ruin your gun

Water my roots the natural thing
Natural spring to the sea
Sulfur springs make my body float
Like a ship made of logs from a tree

Redwoods talk to me
Say it plainly
The human name
Doesn't mean shit to a tree

Snow called water going violent
Dam the end of the stream
Too much cold in one place breaks
That's why you might know what I mean

Consider how small you are
Compared to your scream
The human dream
Doesn't mean shit to a tree

A prophetic song ? | Reviewer: R.Sathish Kumar | 8/31/10

The song seems to foresee global warming by decades.
“The human name doesn’t mean shit to a tree,” the lyric goes.
“Our greed does mean shit to a tree.” Grace Slick said . “The trees are dying. All of our separating ourselves from the planet is stupid because, the larger picture, whether or not you become president of Bank America has nothing to do with evolution.”
One of the best of JFA.

Sorry - I couldn't get the correction link to work.

Shouldn't it be "Dam the end of the stream"?
