lyrics

Seventeen thousand pearls of wisdom, I have swallowed down
All of them growing here inside me, like children
Mottled and glistening in my gullet, I can feel them change
They've acquired edges and grown stronger, like diamonds

Nobody knows they lie here nesting, no one's seen them yet
They can't be found by one not looking for treasure

Open me up you might find hidden gold
I've been saving for some rainy night
Peel back my skin and I might just unfold
Like a flower in first morning light…on a bed of crystal water

Seventeen thousand seeds and secrets, I have tucked away
Sweet and delicious in their silence, like shadows

Open me up you might find hidden gold
I've been saving for some rainy night
Peel back my skin and I might just unfold
Like a flower in first morning light…on a bed of crystal water
