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...

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.

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.

This song gives me strong DnD, Lord of the Flies, and Peter Pan vibes. I personally see it as a "Live Life to its Fullest" type of thing, mixed in with a dash of adventure and a side of enjoying the natural things around you.

I found the song enchanting the first time that I heard it because it possesses a seemingly mythical quality. I can't help but think of The Odyssey from many of the lines. Odysseus' trials with the Lotos Eaters and Circe both speak of feasting and indulging, forgetting the toils of daily life. Circe turns his men to "pigs" in addition. After he experiences the "Sirens" where he needs to be tied to the mast in order to hear their "verse-less" and deadly song. In addition, the major theme in Tennyson's "Ulysses" is that the "journey never ends" because this hero will drink life to the lees. Just my humble opinion.

This song is the interpretation of each of the characters in lord of the flies. Each verse represents each of the main characters. Mainly Simon, since it references the pig on a stick a lot. Also, with the rhythm being that of a tribal matter, it references the power of jacks tribe

This to me sounds exactly like the kind of song that would be present in lord of the flies as the beat and tribal rhythms match the themes in the story. I also get some Peter Pan vibes

It reminds me of the lord of the flies.

It definitely has a ‘beat to the sound of your own drum’ vibe to me, an usher to live freely and fully, without the “humdrum” of fast-moving society. It it quite a lovely song, and I love how it’s mystic (and slightly witchy vibe) give it a fun and magical tone.

I always imagined this song as a very Autumn/Winter vibe in a forest.

I noticed it actually has a reference to the poem “Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll for whoever is interested. It’s on the line about “slight toves” and “borogoves”.

I don't know why, but I always thought of it as sung by a supervillain with a sort of nihlistic view on society trying to convince someone to join him in his safe place as he destroys the world. One that believes the world will be better, without greed and anger, once he's built it again from the ground up.
This probably isn't the true meaning, but it's the way I listen to it I guess!
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.
