The Rabbit

from Five Hundred Seeds by Awahnichi

lyrics

You run from the hungry bear
With it's grizzly growl, it's deadly stare
You run from the rabid dog
With it's bloody teeth, it's matted hair
You run and run and run and run
All your life, every day

But now, they know, your hiding place
It's time to stand, time to play
And no, forget your fears
Forget your fears, of yesterday

First you saw the hungry bear
She took an eye, and some hair
Then you saw the rabid dog, she took a leg
Choked on the bone and ran away
And as you stand here crippled now
Your heart is strong, your futures clear

And now, I'm the alpha male
It's my forest now, if you couldn't tell
And you monsters, you should be afraid
Of the rabbit with one leg, and the cotton tail

Cause I will terrorize your lives
I will come and steal your food, and keep you up at night
I will come and take your babes
Take them to my rabbit hole
And I'll make them slaves
I'll make them dig for days
Make them dig for days
