  • 70 million years ago a raptor stood alone
    the burning sunlight through the trees upon his feathers shone
    he thought about his family who'd come to doubt his sanity
    far from the dust he once called home


    a big mosquito took some blood when he slept inside a cave
    he woke to darkness all around his mind a scattered maze
    he could hear his mothers warbled cries
    he felt his fathers judging eyes
    and his brothers voice who told him to be brave


    the dawn erupted to his dance with a serpent in the grass
    the raptors claw was swift as thoughts but the slithered mind was fast
    the serpent turned and spoke these words
    'when i see you again i'll call you bird'
    but the raptors claw to swift to slow mid slash
    and the serpent flew to the ancient future past

    the serpent flew ya ya ya
    the serpent flew ya ya ya
    the serpent flew ya ya ya
    the serpent flew - shit!

    the raptor stood there in a dream reflecting what he'd seen
    he could not understand at all what would this omen bring?
    then a rumbling sun the falling eye
    the sound ripped holes across his mind
    and the smell of feathered colors
    burning ash
    and the raptor flew to the ancient future past

    the raptor flew ya ya ya (x9) Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
