Origin of Love
When the earth was still flat and the clouds made of fire
and the mountains stretched up to the sky, sometimes higher
folks roamed the earth like big rolling kegs
They had two sets of arms they had two sets of legs.
They had two faces peering out of one giant head
so they could watch all around them as they talked while they read
and they never knew nothing of love
It was before the origin of love.
Well there were three sexes then
one that looked like two men glued on back to back.
They were the children of the sun
and similar in shape girth were the children of the earth.
Whey looked like two girls rolled up in one
And the children of the moon was
like a fork shoved on a spoon.
They were part sun part earth part daughter part son.
Well the gods grew quite scared of our strength and defiance.
And thor said i’m gonna kill them all with my hammer like i killed the giants.
But zeus said no you’d better let me use my lightning like scissors
like i cut the legs off the whales,
dinosaurs into lizards.
Then he grabbed up some bolts, he let out a laugh
said i’ll split them right down the middle
gonna cut them right up in half.
And then storm clouds gathered above into great balls of fire
And then fire shot down from the sky in bolts
like shining blades of a knife.
And it ripped right through the flesh
of the children of the sun and the moon and the earth.
And some indian god sewed the wound up to a hole,
turned it ’round to our bellies to remind us the price we payed.
And osiris, and the gods of the nile gathered up a big storm
to blow a hurricane to scatter us away,
a flood of wind and rain, a sea of tidal waves
to wash us all away.
And if we don’t behave they’ll cut us down again
and we’ll be hopping ’round on one foot
looking through one eye.
The last time i saw you we had just split in two
he was looking at me, i was looking at you.
You had a way so familiar i could not recognize
Cause you had blood on your face
and i had blood in my eyes.
But i swear by your expression
that the pain down in your soul was the same
as the one down in mine.
That’s the pain
that cuts a straight line down through the heart
we call it love.
We wrapped our arms around each other
tried to shove ourselves back together.
We were making love, making love
It was a cold dark evening such a long time ago
when by the mighty hand of jove.
It was a sad story how we became lonely two-legged creatures.
The story, the origin of love.
That’s the origin of love.
Oh yeah, the origin of love.
The origin of love.
The origin of love.
