Spiny and spirally
Sappy and fiery
Pinecones (pinecones)
Our bodies felt warm beside the flame
Crunchy and pokey,
ya burn them they're smokey
they're pinecones (pinecones)
The ash in the air spelled out her name

And they twist, and they roll
and they'll conify your soul
Found a pinecone, that was glowing through the scales
Was a hell of a ride when we dared to crawl inside
All colors and visions whizzin' by
And the alien sang
In a cozy southern twang
"Embrace love,
Everything else is a shame"

Awoke in a flurry,
We left in a hurry
That pinecone (pinecone)
I thought we had left it in the snow
Got back to our pad
She reached her bag
There's that pinecone (pinecone)
And it's glowing even brighter than before

And when we jumped in
Pine needles poked our skin
Burning tree sap enveloped us alive
But before we could cry
Demon birds pecked out our eyes
We were sure that we'd met our demise
Then the alien said
with a pitchfork to our heads
Return the pinecone
or soon you'll both be dead

Woke up in a terror
We realized our error
That pinecone (pinecone)
Belonged in the woods, that was its home
And so we returned it
And then we burned it
The pinecone (pinecone)
Turned to ash
As the fire warmed our bones


As we kissed in the night
we knew the alien was right
Embrace love
but don't hold on too tight
