duchess and the proverbial mind spread lyrics – primus

burnin’, i feel a burnin’ in my stomach
i wanna know if i’m a gonna make it
if i don’t just spread my ashes
if i do just spread you mind

swimmin’, i see myself a treadin’ water
i see no signs of any other people
there’s a heron up above me
i lay back and spread my mind

duchess, she used to be a movie maker
she used to like to watch the boys watch her
and she saved enough money
to go to cal and spread her mind

billy used to follow the dead with arnie
and they made a hundred thousand dollars
but ended up in federal prison
twenty years for spreading minds
