“Green Children”
Artist: 10,000 Maniacs
Albums: Love Among The Ruins (1997)

An August day in the hills of Spain
A pair of children emerged from a cave
The strangest sight there alone they stood
With skin of green and words no one had heard

The girl was stronger, the boy was weak
With her new mother she learned to speak
And wove a tale of a dying sun
They left the darkness
A dark world come undone

They travelled so far
Believing they came from a star
She fell through life, through time
(Through parallel lives)

The men of science, the men of fame
The men of letters tried to explain:
Was it parallel worlds or a twist of time
To make her think she'd fallen from the sky?

A whirlwind spun them all alone
Took them from their twilight home

Believing they came from a star
