I can't get over how amazing and unique Stuart Davis' songs are.

Here are some lyrics from this page.

Ladder [ mp3 ]

I've got brains like antique floors
I built each one on the one before
I use all three
but they don't agree

One of them wants to love you
another one would love to club you
my natures
move like glaciers

The fish became a lizard
The shrew became an ape
Will the ape become an angel?
The higher that we climb
the more the ladder sways

I'm the bastard child, the one who got
the head of Einstein and the soul of Pol Pot
No compassion, but I can split the atom

Better give me a microscope for a different eye
Better give me a telescope for the inward sky
And a ladder leading up from Eden

(Refrain)

If Ramana Maharshi
came from clay
there's more to evolution
than a little DNA

Cut off the moorings
to the inward Ark
aiming it into
a question mark

Mmmm fish became a lizard
shrew became an ape
will the ape become....
Ramana Maharshi came from clay
there's more to evolution
than a little DNA
