Last night I had a dream
I found myself in a desert
Called Cyberland

It was hot
My canteen had sprung a leak
And I was thirsty

Out of the abyss
Walked a cow, Elsie
I asked if she had
Anything to drink

She said, "I'm forbidden
To produce milk
In Cyberland, we only drink
Diet Coke"

She said, "Only thing to do
Is jump over the moon"
"They've closed everything
Real down"

"Like barns and troughs
And performance spaces
And replaced it all with lies
And rules and virtual life
But there is a way out"

Leap of fate, leap of fate
Leap of fate, leap of fate

"Only thing to do
Is jump over the moon
I gotta get out of here
It's like I'm being tied to the hood"

"Of a yellow rental truck
Being packed in
With fertilizer and fuel oil"

"Pushed over a cliff by
A suicidal Mickey Mouse
I've got to, got to, got to find a way"

"To jump over the moon
Only thing to do
Is jump over the moon"

Then a little bulldog entered
His name we have learned
Was Benny

And although he once had principles
He abandoned them
To live as a lap dog
To a wealthy daughter
Of the Revolution

"That's bull," he said
"Ever since the cat
Took up the fiddle
That cow's been jumpy"

"The dish and spoon
Were evicted from the table and eloped
She's had trouble with that milk
And the moon ever since
Maybe it's a female thing"

"'Cause who'd want to leave
Cyberland anyway?
Walls ain't so bad
The dish and the spoon for instance"

"They were down on their luck
Knocked on my doghouse door"
I said, "Not in my backyard, utensils
Go back to China"

"The only way out is up"
Elsie whispered to me
"A leap of faith"
"Still thirsty?"

Parched, "Have some milk"
I lowered myself beneath her
And held my mouth
To her swollen udder

And sucked the sweetest milk
I'd ever tasted
"Climb on board", she said

And as a harvest moon
Rose over Cyberland
We reared back

We sprang into a gallop
Leaping out of orbit
I awoke singing

Leap of fate, leap of fate
Leap of fate, leap of fate

Only thing to do
Only thing to do is jump
Only thing to do
Is jump over the moon

Only thing to do
Is jump over the moon
Over the moon, over the
Moo, moo, moo
Moo with me

Come on sir, moo with me
Moo, moo, moo, moo
Thank you

LARSON, JONATHAN D.
