Sprout and the Bean
by Joanna Newsom

I slept all day
I woke with distaste
And I railed
And I raved

That the difference between
The sprout and the bean
It is a golden ring
It is a twisted string
And you can ask the counselor;
You can ask the king;
And they'll say the same thing;
And it's a funny thing:

Should we go outside?
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

And as I said
I slept as though dead
Dreaming seamless dreams of lead

When you go away
I am big-boned and fey
In the dust of the day
And in the dirt of the day

And the danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a white coat
And the danger! Danger! Drawing near them was a broad boat
And the water! Water! Running clear beneath a white throat
And the hollow chatter of the talking of the tadpoles

Who know th'outside!
Should we go outside?
Should we break some bread?
Are y'interested?

@Oman stop being a troll.

@Coma define theory.

Charlie Newbold

Have you seen the 1998 Kore-Eda film After Life? Because this could be your memory!

Coma

@Oman of course, I can't prove it just like you can't prove it's untrue. the point of spirituality is faith in one's belief. my comfortable acceptance of the theory is proof enough for me =)

Oman

@Coma proof?

My dad, when i lived with him as a twenty something but didn't quite connect, used to sing along to this when I'd play it... I remember him singing along outside my closed door where he sat in his living room, as a way to try to connect with me. Makes me miss him.
