Lyrics

Down Came The Wonder Tree

Written By: Jeff Bruce

She was a mystic and I'm just a clown
Tearing your glorious curtains all down
Traveling into the depths of the dark
Emerge on the other side, waterway park

How did we get here?
How do we leave?
The choice isn't obvious
An ace up my sleeve
Grab onto me and follow my lead
We'll take this vine and swing up to our trees

Up in our canopy standing at ease
Waging a war on the monkeys
Lined up our kindling at the base of the bark
Said 'sayonara' and lit up a spark

Down Came The Wonder Tree
Down Came The Wonder Tree
Down Came The Wonder Tree
Down, Down

After the fight in the name of celebration
We painted our arms and we painted our faces
Wearing disguises and wheelbarrow races
And running around like young children on pixie sticks

Oh my! Look what we've become
Oh my! Look what we've be--
Come (Such a terrible mistake! Such a terrible mistake! Such a terrible mistake!)

How did we get here?
How do we leave?
The choice isn't obvious
An ace up my sleeve (again)
The primordial sneeze
Programmed to be
Please recognize that we all are just monkeys
That we're all just monkeys
