"The Monkey Song"

Third Snow Song is the first song on the single Philyra. It was re-released on the compilation Protein Source of the Future...Now!.


In January, I took the short walk
Down to the Broadway Bridge
Two and a half blocks
When you scrape the ice away
You can read the bridge dedication
I could feel the cold air coming in through my teeth
I saw the bridge, I saw the water underneath
That's a whole lot of water
That's a whole lot of water

I took out the key that I'd forgotten the function of
Twisted it from the keyring as the bridge loomed above
I hammered it against the ice
I hammered it against the ice
