In Our Talons Lyrics

And the warbler sings
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
And the sparrow sings
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
Through the wheels
Through the wheels on the interstate
And hears no refrain

And the beetle creeps
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
On the crippled trees
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
And he looks down to where the soil must have been
Wonderin'

And no, you're not alone
No, my cousins, you're not alone
You're in our talons now and we're never letting go

And the branches bend
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
To the growing sea
(deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
And they ask
And they ask us to spread their seeds
For they know they're drowning

And no, you're not alone
No, my cousins, you're not alone
You're in our talons now and we're never letting go
You're in our headlights frozen and, no, we're not stopping
You may not believe, but even we were scared at first
It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth
We're only human
This at least we've learned
