Gaia 03:37
Gaia How does it feel to have a heart of burning fire Does it help at all when we suck the life out from ya You’ve always been so temperate But one day you’re gonna lose your shit And tear up our residence permit I feel it looming, you’re quietly fuming so now the atmosphere is stuffy and toxic Gaia And though all your so-called friends will try to deny it You let them in to your home and now all the bill’s are immeasurably higher Hidden savings dug up and spent So now no-one can afford the rent So we can wave goodbye to this nice apartment See it floating, floating, ah floating down the noxious ocean "Oh I am a goddess and you are a fool Dare to mistreat me mere mortal you do not know what you do" She goes "oh I am a goddess and you are a fool You act you own me but I’ll still be here long after time’s through with you" Gaia D’you ever wish that cosmic rock had just slipped by ya Guess it’s a risk of being the world’s most frequent flyer But imagine the alternative The giant lizards you’d still live with And this plague may never have transpired Boring, you’re never boring Oh Gaia you are alright Soon i will be leaving you too And Gaia you will be ok Oh float on towards wherever it is you’re going

A single black cloud and a bird of prey All is understood, there is nothing to say A lonely old dog and a weeping tree Everything in its place and how it should be But if anybody put this to the test That was Ines And though I never claimed to love you best I’ve been getting pretty lost in this abstractness Lines on your body, marks on the skin But the deepest scars are hidden within Now this stuff we’re made of pretty steadfast It has taken me a while but the mould is cast And it wouldn’t break for anyone unless It was Ines But if I ever claimed to love you best Then I deserve all the usual epithets A thunderbolt strikes over the inlet Even in paradise there’s always a threat So draw up the bridge, and baton down the hatch You don’t need cut loose, you’re never attached But the vision in the night is a sweet temptress Her name is Ines And yes i might of said that I loved you best But I have rarely to know my love to be selfless

Lyrics:

Gaia
How does it feel to have a heart of burning fire
Does it help at all when we suck the life out from ya
You’ve always been so temperate
But one day you’re gonna lose your shit
And tear up our residence permit
I feel it looming, you’re quietly fuming so now the atmosphere is stuffy and toxic

Gaia
And though all your so-called friends will try to deny it
You let them in to your home and now all the bill’s are immeasurably higher
Hidden savings dug up and spent
So now no-one can afford the rent
So we can wave goodbye to this nice apartment
See it floating, floating, ah floating down the noxious ocean

"Oh I am a goddess and you are a fool
Dare to mistreat me mere mortal you do not know what you do"
She goes "oh I am a goddess and you are a fool
You act you own me but I’ll still be here long after time’s through with you"

Gaia
D’you ever wish that cosmic rock had just slipped by ya
Guess it’s a risk of being the world’s most frequent flyer
But imagine the alternative
The giant lizards you’d still live with
And this plague may never have transpired
Boring, you’re never boring
Oh Gaia you are alright
Soon i will be leaving you too
And Gaia you will be ok

Oh float on towards wherever it is you’re going
