lyrics

Nine months afloat in a well.
Never see much past the shell.
Never know heaven from hell.
Got rid of my tail halfway through

Nothing to worry my head
Never’s a word (n)ever said
Never know living from dead
And hopeful that I never do

Safe and sound. I’ll stay right here, hunkered down.
Safe and sound. I’ll stay right here, hunkered down.
Safe and sound. I’ll stay right here, safe inside a cell.

Soon I burst into this place
Chairman of beauty and grace
They shoved it right back in my face
Got sent here to get rid of me

Nurse rings the thirty-year bell
Candles and white clientele
“Back you go into your cell
You’re better when we let you be
safe and sound.
Stay right here and settle down.
Safe and sound. Stay right here and settle down.
Safe and sound. Stay right here. Safe inside a cell.”
