lyrics

You be the mortar and I'll be the pestle
We'll crush the leaves of green between
Cogs merging the gears of time
Refined robot routine

The clouds hold our tears feed the river whirls the wheel spins the axle
Turns the stones mill the bones into grist that makes our bread
There is a perfect order to the comfort of our quarter
I'm the pestle, you're the mortar, I'm the spindle, you're the thread

You be the mortar and I'll be the pestle
We'll bump and grind the magic bean
Sewing the seed of love and laughter
Coming together in this machine

The clouds hold our tears feed the river whirls the wheel spins the axle...

We will pulverize to powder our original sin
Mix it with two beads of sweat that trickle from our skin
Dry it in the desert sun then do that thrice again
Cup it in our own four hands then throw it to the wind

You be the mortar and I'll be the pestle
Gently rocking to and fro
Bobbing corks out on the ocean
Feel the pulsing ebb and flow

The clouds hold our tears feed the river whirls the wheel spins the axle...

We will pulverize to powder our original sin...
