Come Along Lyrics
Sit with me on a muddy clump,
We'll sing a song of days gone by.
Run along now don't be glum,
Get you gone now have some fun,
Don't be long for the end is nigh.
Don't let moments pass along and waste before...
I first heard this song a couple of days ago...but it was the Pentatonix version, and my first thought was "this sounds like what Terrence McKenna would describe as "the mushroom speaking". I then looked to see who wrote the song and found it was Cosmo Sheldrake, and immediately felt it was likely that he was related to Rupert Sheldrake, and quickly confirmed this with a google search. Can't help but think this lends credence to my "theory" on the meaning here, as Rupert Sheldrake and Terrence McKenna knew each other well. I just adore these lyrics and am infinitely intrigued by the idea of them being "mushroom wisdom" :)

I feel like this song is about enjoying life to it's fullest...but also the hope that it will "rise again". Like reincarnated- especially when it states "where the two ends meet again". It's subtle...but absolutely an anthem for how to live many lives...like how it talks about running away to a place free from "greed anger and boredom". I feel a symbolism of death when it references a "rare specimen of a hesitant skeleton" - meaning the death cycle (of life) is but a short 'vacation' from life....especially when it says "there's no time to waste or time to throw away"! Our journey NEVER ENDS!!!!

It sounds and reads like a song Peter Pan would sing to lure the Lost Boys, especially the part about "Once we're fed we shall disappear rapidly
Many moons to the west of here and happily
Our journey never ends" which echoed for me like Peter saying to Wendy, "second star on the right and straight on til morning."

Hufflelumps is a Pooh reference and borogroves is from the Jabberwocky.

It’s a brilliant and sly, joyful anthem to mortality. Life is brief; get your asses moving and live each moment fully. The lyrics are poetic, the music irresistably infectious.

A nuanced anthem of "seize the day" trope, this song is witty and deep, emphasizing life-long learning and the folly of following to closely when it comes to pursuing those causes which are too intoxicating. I plan on teaching it to my grandkids and hope that if they have any adult memories of me it will be this song and how I believed in it, as a lifelong template for them. It's that good.
