  • I grew up from the end of man
    and I crushed fifteen million with a wave of my hand
    I grew drunk on water turned into wine
    Till I was slave and master at the same damn time

    But this is why I am Why I am Why I am
    Still dancin with the GrooGrux King

    Out of my head and into the womb. Hello
    I cant know a man that makes no sense
    When I bow to a priest while he worships a witch

    But this is why I am
    the only one who to make you smile
    Why I am a snake in the woodpile
    Its Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King

    Out of my head and into the womb
    So will my ghost take things from you
    You can remember the fool that I am
    Dont cry baby don't cry
    The lose and the win of the world
    Wrong and right us and them of the world
    The you and the me of the world
    Only one way out of the world

    Its the lose and the win of the world
    Wrong and right us and them of the world
    The you and the me of the world
    Only one way out of the world

    (Tim Reynolds goes off)

    Its why I am unlikely to agree
    Why I am climbin out of my monkey tree
    Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King
    Ive been drinkin Big Whiskey while we dance and sing
    When my story ends its gonna end with him
    Heaven or Hell I'm goin there with the GrooGrux King
    Its Why i am the apple of your pretty eye
    Why I am a snake in the woodpile
    Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King

    out of my head an into the womb
    so will my ghost take this from you
    you can remember the fool that I am
    Dont cry baby don't cry
