I don't want to dance on this red clay
Or see the ghosts of strange fruit hung on the trees
He flew to a blue world and I went back to the South
Haunted by this gossamer on our mouths

I am caught in the spin
Are you laughing Anansi
First you give then you take
Are you happy Anansi

The veil was thin
Reality was what we believed
I saw his nose bleed
He glimpsed my morbid comedy
At the pavilion
We met the Guardian of the Gate
In the strobe light of faery dance
Time had no claim on us

I am caught in the spin
Are you laughing Anansi
There's a give
There's a take
Are you happy Anansi
O the web that you weave
O the trickery Anansi
I'm so tired of these games
Are you laughing Anansi

How can I do without
Every dream desired
You keep them eight legs away
Sewing a line to my mind
Eight legs away
Eight legs away

mmmmmm hmmmmm
mmmmmm hmmmmm
mmmmmm hmmmmm
