Cobra wings break my fall and lay me down gently
Dream bellows collapse and lie empty
I reached out to touch the prize — well where is she?
He looked back with spinning eyes, made me dizzy
I threw my balance to the wind — I thought I was flying
So let me feed the earth this empty skin cuz I'm dying
Cast me off this naked bough — the fruit is rotten
And lay me gently in the leaves where all is forgotten
In Caroline! Carolina!
These cobra wings won't break my fall
