lyrics

A man came bursting out from the trees
He was so caked with dirt I couldn’t tell what he was wearing
And his glasses were cracked, I couldn’t tell where he was staring
Oh my, oh me

As a doctor of science he introduced himself to me
His hands gestured madly as he told me of
how he’d always had a craving to conquer the unknown
So he left his home and the things he’d known
To see if he could find that which had yet to become reality
And he said to me….

CHORUS
Just when I was starting to believe what I see
The mythical creatures all came out and made a fool out of me
Just when I was gathering the proof that they bleed
They disappeared and once again a fool they left me

My mother told me horses can’t fly
You’ll never see them coming down from the sky
I’m sorry son, but it's not your fate
To have that horned beast of burden carry your weight

And my sister cackled when I claimed
I saw a hairy ape man leaving from his cave
My teacher told me to give it a rest
When I told her I was talking to the troll in my desk

But then one day my friends stopped appearing
As I started caring about the clothes that I was wearing
And replacing them with those of my own kind

But I swear sometimes I still see them leering
At me from the dark woods peering
hints of hostility in their eyes

So I asked the man would he be so kind
To let me join his research mission
so I could back his claims with my own eyes
And sure enough…
