Disturbance At The Heron House?...BRB with lyrics

"They’re going wild," the call came in

At early morning pre-dawn, then

"The followers of chaos out of control

They’re numbering the monkeys

The monkeys and the monkeys,"

The followers of chaos out of control

"They’re meeting at the monument,"

The call came in the monument

To liberty and honor under the honor roll

"They’ve gathered up the cages the cages and courageous,"

The followers of chaos out of control

The call came in to Party Central

"Meeting of the green and simple,"

Try to tell us something we don’t know

"Disturbance at the Heron House"

A stampede at the monument

To liberty and honor under the honor roll

The gathering of grunts and greens

Cogs and grunts and hirelings

A meeting of a mean idea to hold

"When feeding time has come and gone

They’ll lose the heart and head for home

Try to tell us something we don’t know"

A long shot since "morning" isn't really in the chorus and I don't know if this was released as a single but "Parakeet" - REM

You wake up in the morning

And fall out of your bed

Mean cats eat parakeets

And this one's nearly dead

You dearly wish the wind would shift

And greasy windows slide

Open for the parakket

Who's colored bitter lime

Open the window

To lift into a dream

Baby, baby

You can barely breathe

A broken wrist

An accident

You know that something's wrong

You fold the leavings of your past

No one knows you've gone

The sunspot flares of the early

Nineties light up your wings

And scan the shortwave radio

It's tracking outer rings

Open the window

To lift into a dream

Baby, baby

You can start to breathe

The tectonic dispatcher shifts

To smooth the ocean floor

And flattens out to warmer winde

Of Brisbane's sunny shore

Where buddhas tend to mending wrists

A tea made from the leaves

Of eucalyptus fragances

And coriander seeds

You wake up in the morning

To warm Pacific breeze

Where mean cats chew on licorice

And cannot climb the trees
