Dinosaur Sex

Play Video
  • These roads, they lead as far as they can lead
    That's why they're called the ways that make you feed
    Cranes are lifting cargo to the sea
    They are the size the dinosaurs would be.

    Power station shivers, then it leaks
    Bleeds onto the fields and kills the wheat
    Harvest comes but will we ever eat?
    Power station shivers, then it leaks.

    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    And maybe we will lead to nothing
    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    But we will lead as far as we can lead

    These days I watch the screen for what I need
    I take my food on trays across my knee
    Leaves are always falling from the trees
    I think I see my future in the leaves.

    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    And maybe I will lead to nothing
    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    But I will lead as far as I can lead

    I think I see the future when I sleep
    The sky splits like an almond under feet
    Skin is peeling off of us in sheets
    I think I see the future when I sleep

    And power stations shiver and they leak
    They bleed onto the fields and kill the wheat
    A sea of clouds is billowing in heat
    Oh, harvest comes and babies born with teeth.
    And skin is peeling off of us in sheets
    I think I see the future when I sleep.

    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    And maybe you will lead to nothing
    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    But you will lead as far as you can lead.

    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    And maybe you will lead to nothing
    And dinosaur sex led to nothing
    But you will lead as far as we can lead. Writer/s: EMMA MOSS, EUAN HINSHELWOOD, GARETH GRIFFITH-JONES
