the beekeeper lyrics – tori amos

flaxen hair blowing in the breeze
it is time for the geese to head south
i have come with my mustard seed
i cannot accept that she will be taken from me

“do you know who i am” she said
“i’m the one who taps you on the shoulder when it’s your time
don’t be afraid i promise that she will awake
tomorrow somewhere
tomorrow somewhere”

wrap yourself around
the tree of life and the dance of the infinity
of the hive
take this message to michael

i will comb myself into chains
in between the tap dance clan
and your ballerina gang
i have come for the beekeeper
i know you want my
you want my queen
anything but this
can you use me instead?

in your gown with your breathing mask
plugged into a heart machien
as if you ever needed one
i must see the beekeeper i must see if she’ll keep her alive
call engine 49 i have come with my mustard seed

maybe i’m p*ssing you by
just p*ssing you by girl
i’m p*ssing you by
on my way
on my way
i’m just p*ssing you by
but don’t be confused
one day i’ll be coming for you…
i must see the beekeeper
i must see the beekeeper
