lyrics

But the
Quiet
Neanderthals.
Surely we
Must’ve fallen
In love
With one
Of them.
Surely some
Savage
Must have
Lain down
With the
Gentle
Big jawed
Mute
Neanderthal.
Kissed his eyes
His big brain
Among
Other things.
We must
Have Neanderthal
Blood.
Surely.
I mean
We slept with everyone
Even the shark
The Lizard
The Antelope.
Anything that had lungs
Claws
Skin.
Surely we did
The deed
With our
Next of
Kin.
This
Gives me
Hope
In our blood
The Neanderthal
Mute
Suffering
Poetic
Sleeps through
Our savagery
Defenseless
Or is that
All hot
Air?
Will he wake?
Does
He lurk
And wait
For a better
Time?
For a race
That
Deserves him
And his
Kind?
If he
Could speak
Now
What would he
Say?
