Lima Bean
A song about lima beans, I'm quite sure what it means, but here it is anyways. It's an energetic song in a mildly melancholic way.

Lima Bean
Verse 1:
I am not a beggar, from the other side of the dried up lake,
I am not a dreamer, dried up life is my mistake,
I am not a soldier, I'm not a soldier on patrol,
I'm just a human, I need to reconnect my soul,
Connecting...

Chorus:
Lines to the dots and the dots to the lines,
One man's mirror is another man's mime,
Lines to the dots till they burst through the seams,
Twisting the knots till they grow lima beans,
Till they scream mother earth come and set me free,
From the metaphor of the birds and the bees,
From the metaphor of the earth and the sky,
Till the lima bean sits still tonight tonight,

Verse 2:
I am not a chooser, from the outskirts of deadbeat town,
I'm not a ghost, like you in your midnight gown,
I sit in silence, in memory of life in better days,
I'm just a human, I can't forget your subtle ways,
Directing...

Chorus:

Verse 1 repeat:

Outro:
Lines to the dots to the dots turning green,
Lines to the dots till the burst through the seams,
Twisting the knots till they grow lima beans,
Till the lima bean sits still tonight tonight,
Tonight tonight,
The lima bean,
Sits still tonight,

Tonight tonight (tonight tonight)
Tonight tonight (tonight tonight)
The lima bean (tonight tonight)
Sits still tonight (tonight tonight)

Repeated tonights till end.

Read, enjoy, comment. Thank you.

Cheers

You could do this to 'In the Jungle' ,
like Ooweeeeeee Weee a wim a wea, In the jungle the silent jungle the lima bean sits still tonight!.....

On kidding!   

So you have the rhythm worked out! There's a few typos, well I think they are anyway,
I do really like it, I haven't got a clue what lima beans are or what exactly your on about, I especially like the chorus.
I'd actually like to sing this, I'd re-write a little as you know, lol, but you'd have to make something else out of lima beans though! 
Sorry, you do not have access to post...
