Lyrics to Stuart Wilde’s The Innocents

The Innocents is a very moving track from the album Genesis by Greenwood and Stuart Wilde. Wonderful. Here are the lyrics:

Two suns high in the east
Snake bites Coma Berenice*
Flip flop the little kids say
Wilde tribe going their way…

Flip-flop losing the moon
Maybe happen real soon
Flip-flop the little kids sing
Watch now everything spin…

Two suns high in the east
Snake bites Coma Berenice*
Flip flop the little kids dance
Mannan’ Mac’s** humming a trance…

Shine, shine having some fun
Snowman in noon day sun
Flip-flop the winter’s here
Strange thing for the time of year

Waves rise high in the sky
Magic keeping us dry
Flip-flop the little kids dance
Mannan’ Mac’s humming a trance

Splish splash having some fun
Tick-tock coming undone
Splish splash the little kids play
Grown-ups losing their way

Winds rush over our heads
All night, safe in our beds
Hip-hop the little kids dance
Mannan’ Mac’s humming a trance

Shine, shine having some fun
Snowman in the noon day sun
Watch now the winter’s here
Strange thing for the time of year

* Coma Bernice is a constellation in Leo. Its name means ‘Berenice’s Hair’, and refers to the legend of Queen Berenice II of Egypt, who sacrificed her long hair.
**Mannan’ Mac’ is short for the Irish God Manannan Mac Lir, (sometimes written Lyr) from the mythical Tuatha De Dannan. He was the ocean God that took the prince little Lugh away and trained him to come back and fight and defeat the evil forces of the Formorians, who were sometimes depicted as having the body of a man and the head of a goat, like Baphomet. Mannan’ Mac’ was a teacher of small children that is why the children sing about him with glee in the song.
