Bone serpent mother
where has father’s sister gone?
Years to raise and moments to ruin
poor Aunty Europa
Some people say she rode a bull out west
(but we know east is best)
Our father’s father cried to the wind
“hie you home”
and to his boy screamed
“get you gone” now
find my daughter son

Mother Harmonia
don’t you know they’ll say
“In the beginning was the word”
ah but we know better
Daddy made an alphabet
before all that — he brought it here
yeah daddy soon gave up his quest
he brought us here

Now they’re getting old in the old world
not keeping the peace in the new world
Oh Mother Harmonia

Bone serpent mother
Hollowed out by prophecy
we keep the feast in this new city
with too much wine and violence
we’ve torn our sons to pieces
oh mother dear
can you kiss them better
