did you chop off your hand
as part of some noble plan
or was it just something to do
a gesture empty enough for two
me and you
got more limbs to remove
and pliars to use when we follow through
it's the hardest thing to do

so as I leave
please forget me
I'd rather be stranded at sea
hopefully hopelessly

better better it's better this way
better better it's better this way

if you send me your hand
I'll bury it in the sand of some deserted beach
sow the seed so to speak
and in a week I'll no longer feel the



palm leaves will be swaying in the breeze
and if I perspire I will lay down beneath
yeah I will lay down to be in the shade
in the shade of your seed oh!

(it's true from see to sapling you grew
and in your shade though too late I knew
I should've stayed
I should've stayed with you)
