dinosaur lyrics – adrian belew

long ago and far away in a different age
when i was a dumb young guy
fossilized photos of my life then
ill*strate what an easy prey i must have been

standing in the sun, idiot savant
something like a monument

i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones
i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones

ignorance has alway been something i excel in
followed by naivety and pride
doesn’t take a scientist to see how
any clever predator could have a piece of me

standing in the sun, idiot savant
something like a monument

i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones
i’m a dinosaur

ooh, when i look back on the past
it’s a wonder i’m not yet extinct
all the mistakes and bad judgments i made
nearly pushed me to the brink

it doesn’t pay to be too nice
it’s the one thing i have learned
still, i made my fossil bed
and now i toss and turn

i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones
i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones

i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones
i’m a dinosaur
somebody is digging my bones
