Testo the raven - genesis

He places the number into a tube


A yellow plastic shoobedoobe.

It says: Though your fingers may tickle

You'll be safe in our pickle.

Suddenly
black cloud comes down from the sky.

It's a supersize black bird that sure can fly.



The raven brings on darkness and night

He flies right down
gives me one hell of a fright.

He takes the tube right out of my hands

Man
I've got to find out where that black bird lands.



Look here John, I've got to run

I need you now, you going to come?


He says to me.



John:



Now can't you see

Where the raven flies there's jeopardy.



We've been cured on the couch

Now you're sick with your grouch.

I'll not risk my honey pouch

Which my slouch will wear slung very low.




Rael:



He walks away and leaves me once again.

Even though I never learn


I'd hoped he'd show just some concern.



I'm in agony of Slipperpain

I pray my undercarriage will sustain.

The chase is on
the pace is hot

But I'm running so very hard with everything I've got.

He leads me down an underpass

Though it narrows
he still flies very fast


When the tunnel stops

I catch sight of the tube
just as it drops.

I'm on top of a bank
to steep to climb


I see it hit the water
just in time


to watch it float away
