Why Did You Separate Me From The Earth? lyrics

Why did you separate me from the earth?
Oh my god
Why did you separate me from the earth?

My father

You drew lines miles high
In steel or nuclear
The forests of Borneo
White water in your mouth
I don’t want your future
I’ll never return
I’ll be born into the past
I’m never coming home

Why did you separate me, me from the earth?
What did you stand to gain?
Why did you separate me from the earth?

The rotten bodies threaded gold
The pitch of hair and sticky meat
The sea life cut with plastic
A white cross gilded gold
A case of white doves
Laying in the boiling snow
A sharp knife of concrete
The blue line of tuna’s throat

I don’t want your future
I’m never, I'm never coming home
I don’t want your future
I’ll be born before you’re born

Why did you separate me, me from the earth?
What did you have to gain?
Why did you separate me from the earth?
What did you have to gain?
Why did you separate me from the earth?
(From the earth, from the earth, from the earth)
What did you have to gain?
