Lyrics

It’s a down beat, the beat comes down
And rides the Monarch out of town
The Monarch is a butterfly who’s built the same as you and I
He wears blue jeans with a wine belly
He’s secreting royal jelly
Which his consort loves to cook
And then they peer in the cooking book

I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight

Everyone is made of meat
They’re full of life and life is sweet
Sweet as honey to the bear
He'll tear you into bits of hair
And if they cut him open after
He has eaten all your laughter

I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight

Hello tiny madam, can I comfort you tonight
When the priest has gone? Oh, right -

I’m gonna see you in the afterlife, a-hooo

Welcome to our living room
Where the iguanas loom
They gaze out at the giant leaves
Magnolias that brush the eaves
It’s always coming to an end
It’s always dark around the bend
But I will stay with you beyond
Everything that’s been and gone…

I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight

Hello tiny madam, can I comfort you tonight?
With the tiny world so bright -

I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight
I’m gonna see you in the afterlight a-hoo
A-hooo
