lyrics

Tilling your soil, pulling weeds
Inviting spiders, lacewings, bees
Oh you're strong but so sore
Hunger pushes you for more
You bide your time, while the irons heat
The fire in your belly, makes it hard to eat
All you want is a little piece
Oh the phantom nectar tastes so sweet

Bootstraps pulled up to your chin
though the drought is sinking in
Oh you're strong but so sore
Thirst pushes, you endure
You bide your time, while the irons heat
The fire in your belly, makes it hard to eat
All you want is a little piece
Oh the phantom nectar tastes so sweet

Tastes so sweet
